a yummy way to jazz up a 69cent box of jiffy cornbread mix! with fresh jalapeno, pepper jack cheese and a surprise ingredient.

not really anything special, but i took pics so thought i’d share πŸ™‚

use the basic recipe – mix plus 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk. add in 1 chopped jalapeno (remove the seeds and veins if you want it to be mild), a very full 1/3 cup shredded cheese of your choice and 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese. the cottage cheese helps with the texture πŸ™‚ makes them more moist.

mix, but dont overmix.

let it sit for about 5 minutes and then fill greased muffin cups about 3/4 full.

slide into a 400 degree oven until puffed and golden.
