Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons of Rio Luna Diced Jalapeños
  • 9 pieces of Rio Luna Nacho Sliced Jalapeños
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 large egg
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Optional: 4 oz shredded cheddar, or cheese of choice

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F, and use pam to coat your muffin tin or use liners.
  2. In a large bowl, mix in the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together. Then stir in the milk, egg and melted butter. Whisk everything thoroughly before adding diced jalapeños. If you want cheesy cornbread, this is where you’d mix in your shredded cheddar or cheese of choice.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes and let cool.
