Last week I posted this pic of some super easy Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread Muffins on my Instagram Stories and my inbox was immediately flooded with recipe requests…
I promised to get the recipe up on the blog soon so here it is! Finally!! LOL!!
I also realized after I promised to get the recipe up that I haven’t posted a recipe on here in a long time. My bad! I promise that I still love to cook and create yummy recipes but I have just felt so uninspired in the kitchen lately. I have been scouring Pinterest for new recipes but just haven’t found anything I am craving/want to make. I’m in a food funk!
But back to these yummy Jalapeño Cheddar Corn Muffins…the weather was super nasty and cold last week and I was in the mood for some comfort food so I went with a super easy (and filling) veggie soup. The thing I love about veggie soup is that you can put any type of veggies you want in it and it still tastes good! Plus since it’s packed with veggies I’m calling it a healthy recipe. HA.
I have done all veggies before but I usually add hamburger meat to mine. I rarely cook hamburger meat (I’m a chicken girl) so this gives me an excuse to use it. And I normally just use whatever frozen and canned veggies I have already in my freezer and cabinets. This particular soup was made with broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, carrots, stewed tomatoes and corn. And the previously mentioned hamburger meat. And I seasoned it with cajun seasoning. YUM!!
I normally make sweet cornbread like my Mama used to make to go with my veggie soup but this time I decided to spice it up a bit and make Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread Muffins to go with it instead. I made it up on the fly with stuff I had in my pantry and they turned out pretty darn good if I do say so myself!
They are super easy to make, I just used a corn muffin mix I already had and mixed it up, added a can of creamy corn, some jalapeños, some jalapeño juice and cheddar cheese and baked it according to the directions on the box. They aren’t super spicy but added a nice kick to my meal!
I like to crumble my muffins up and mix them into the soup because why not? It was delicious!!
The full recipe is below and if you try them I hope you tell me if you liked them as much as I do!!
Do you eat cornbread with your soup??
