Green Chili Cheddar Corn Muffins

The one thing I can’t keep in my house for more than a few hours are corn muffins. My family loves corn muffins, corn wedges or corn sticks. It doesn’t matter how they’re made or what they’re with, they fly outta here, fast. Green Chili Corn Muffins are no exception. Perfect served with butter and honey or with steamy bowls of chili.

Cornbread is an all-American quick bread that substitutes cornmeal for most or sometimes all of the flour. It can include various flavorings such as cheese, scallions, molasses and bacon. Cornbread can be thin and crisp or thick and light. It can be baked Southern style in a skillet or in a shallow square, round or rectangular baking pan. Some of the more popular cornbreads are hush puppies, johnny cakes and spoon bread.

Cast Iron Scone Pan

I made green chili cheddar corn muffins in a cast iron scone pan that I purchased on one of my thrift store shopping adventures. Being the kind of person that I am, I didn’t buy just a cast iron scone pan but also a cast iron cornbread stick pan and a cast iron cactus pan. All three were $5 a piece and are from the great company, Lodge Cast Iron Cheddar and Green Chili Corn Muffins turned out wonderful!

Moist Yet Crispy

In fact, I couldn’t be happier with my new cast iron wedge pan. The corn muffins turned out brown and crispy on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. I’ll never make cornbread any other way again. I’m looking forward to making cornbread sticks and cacti. Next time I make this recipe for cornbread, I’m going to add 1/2 cup fresh corn.
