The muffins didn't rise as I had hoped, buy Boy were these GOOD ! I used a more mild chili powder, other than made as written,. They were nice, and moist too, and very flavorful. Made for a great addition to dinner with some Southwest burgers, and some corn on the cob. Made for Rookie Tag.

This makes a very dense batter so I thinned it just a bit with more milk. I used canned, chopped green chiles and only used about 2/3 of a small can. Next time I'd use the entire can. The chili powder is the most pronounced taste and I'd like to get more of the chiles. Made for PRMR tag.
