Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F; grease a 12-muffin tin very well with butter.
  • With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar; add the eggs and chopped peppers.
  • Add the cheeses, flour, cornmeal, baking powder, ancho, garlic, salt, milk, and corn (if using), and mix until blended (do not over-mix).
  • Pour the dough into the tin, dividing the portions evenly between the 12 muffins.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a tester comes out clean; turn the muffins out to cool.
  • Makes 12 muffins.
  • Note: some people like corn muffins sweeter, so feel free to add more sugar to taste; jalapeno peppers are also good in this recipe, use as much as you like for the level of spiciness you prefer.

  1. 5 stars for flavor! 3 stars for texture... a bit too greasy & the sides stuck to the muffin pan: we actually had to cut them out of the muffin pan but even then the centers were questionably underdone.... Thanks for the recipe: the flavor was yummy!


<p>It's simply this: I love to cook! :) <br /><br />I've been hanging out on the internet since the early days and have collected loads of recipes. I've tried to keep the best of them (and often the more unusual) and look forward to sharing them with you, here. <br /><br />I am proud to say that I have several family members who are also on RecipeZaar! <br /><br />My husband, here as <a href=>Steingrim</a>, is an excellent cook. He rarely uses recipes, though, so often after he's made dinner I sit down at the computer and talk him through how he made the dishes so that I can get it down on paper. Some of these recipes are in his account, some of them in mine - he rarely uses his account, though, so we'll probably usually post them to mine in the future. <br /><br />My sister <a href=>Cathy is here as cxstitcher</a> and <a href=>my mom is Juliesmom</a> - say hi to them, eh? <br /><br />Our <a href=>friend Darrell is here as Uncle Dobo</a>, too! I've been typing in his recipes for him and entering them on R'Zaar. We're hoping that his sisters will soon show up with their own accounts, as well. :) <br /><br />I collect cookbooks (to slow myself down I've limited myself to purchasing them at thrift stores, although I occasionally buy an especially good one at full price), and - yes, I admit it - I love FoodTV. My favorite chefs on the Food Network are Alton Brown, Rachel Ray, Mario Batali, and Giada De Laurentiis. I'm not fond over fakey, over-enthusiastic performance chefs... Emeril drives me up the wall. I appreciate honesty. Of non-celebrity chefs, I've gotta say that that the greatest influences on my cooking have been my mother, Julia Child, and my cooking instructor Chef Gabriel Claycamp at Seattle's Culinary Communion. <br /><br />In the last couple of years I've been typing up all the recipes my grandparents and my mother collected over the years, and am posting them here. Some of them are quite nostalgic and are higher in fat and processed ingredients than recipes I normally collect, but it's really neat to see the different kinds of foods they were interested in... to see them either typewritten oh-so-carefully by my grandfather, in my grandmother's spidery handwriting, or - in some cases - written by my mother years ago in fountain pen ink. It's like time travel. <br /><br />Cooking peeve: food/cooking snobbery. <br /><br />Regarding my black and white icon (which may or may not be the one I'm currently using): it the sea-dragon tattoo that is on the inside of my right ankle. It's also my personal logo.</p>
