How do you take ordinary corn muffins and turn them into something extraordinary with only one extra ingredient? Use a Jalapeno Cilantro cheese from Sincerely Brigitte.
I want to disclose that this post and recipe is part of a partnership with Sincerely Brigitte, a new gourmet flavored cheese company. If you missed my introduction and your first two chances to win a cheese sampler pack don't worry, go here and enter there will still be two more winners, cause we are giving one away every Thursday in May.
Now that you know more about the cheese I want to share my new muffin recipe. These muffins have just the right amount of kick for the whole family to enjoy. They would go particularly well along side a vegetarian chili, but I also really like them for breakfast. I used a mix of whole wheat flour and whole grain corn meal, they are low in sugar and can be made with any kind of healthy oil.
If you really like spice you can add even more fresh jalapeno, but the flavors of the cilantro and jalapeno that come through with the cheese was enough for all but my crazy 8 year old that can't get enough of the hottest hot sauce and it means I didn't have to get my fingers all spiced up chopping a jalapeno.
Here is my recipe for Whole Grain Cheesey Jalapeno Corn Muffins.
