TWD: some like it HOT....

and I'm one of those people!! This was my lucky week, because Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake picked the Savoury Corn and Pepper Muffins as this weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie!! I just didn't know when I would actually eat these.... They didn't sound like a typical muffin and to pair them with a cup of tea seemed extremely odd.

To avoid any mishaps I decided to go and have a look at the P&Q's for the muffins. Big mistake!!! Because after reading all the entries there I (like another couple TWD-ers) had a sudden craving for chili!!! I added an extra 2 tablespoons corn and used a bit more of the red bell pepper than the recipe stated.

Because I never had cornbread or any kind of savoury muffins before I didn't quite know what to expect of these..... I was pleasantly surprised: I just loved the combination of the sweetness of the sugar and that kick in the butt by the jalapeno pepper!! These were perfect with the chili con carne. Since my parents were also eating chili last weekend I brought some muffins over to them. My mom didn't care much for them, but she never has been a fan of the whole sweet-and-spicy-combo. My dad absolutely loved them!
I will be making these again!!!

Check out what the other TWD-ers thought of this recipe here!!

Great job! The muffins look perfect with the chili.

I loved the sweet and spicy combination as well! I agree that these would be WAY better with chili than with tea. Your entire dinner looks great, starting with your muffins!
