Cheddar & Jalapeno Corn Bread

Sweet, Spicy and delicious. That is what these muffins are. I ate these delightful cheesy muffins with my sweet potato chili, and they were a great accompaniment. You can totally make these into corn bread, I just happen to really like these in muffin form. They are like perfect individual servings that you can pop in your mouth without the need to cut the pan for another serving.

I never actually realized how easy it is to make corn bread without using a boxed mix. I already had everything in my pantry so that made it even easier choice to make it from scratch. I of course added a bit of flair with sharp cheddar cheese and spicy jalapenos. These would be perfect if you like savory breakfast items or for a gorgeous brunch or eat them like me with my sweet potato chili.
