    Pepper Monkey's Note:

    My mom used to make these to go with her chili on cold days. They are spicy, cheesy corn bread muffins that are excellent. I hope you enjoy them too. You can also use montery jack cheese instead of cheddar cheese. Your favorite salsa works best in these and i have found that home made salsa is the best at making these unbelievable.

      So the first time I made these, I didn't realize cornmeal mix was something different from cornmeal. Needless to say, they were greasy little rocks. :) But I tried them again the right way and they were really good. I like my cornbread a little sweeter, but hubby loved them and I'm sure we'll have them again with chili and such.

      We thought these were delicious!. I served them with Crock Pot Beans 'n Wieners Crockpot Beans'N Wieners. These would make a meal all by themselves with a tossed salad added. I will be making these again. Thanks Blink for a nice addition to my recipe collection.
