Whole Wheat Tex-Mex Muffins

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on June 20, 2012

I’m afraid I don’t have anything exceptionally exciting to talk about today.  Food is cooking in the kitchen, kids are playing and baby is sleeping on my lap.  For a pretty dull day it’s still not a bad one 🙂

I have to say, I truly cannot believe that I’ve passed 1500 Facebook fans in the last short while – thank you all!  I’m so happy to have you following along with me!  Thank you so so so much for your support!  So I don’t know why all of a sudden my momentum has slowed down in the last few days(it might be a couple complete kitchen fails 🙁 Who knows…), but I’m still in the kitchen and thinking up new ideas.  Things are just going a little slower, but I’m not going anywhere 🙂

I’m a bit afraid to admit these muffins took me 3 tries.  Usually muffins aren’t that difficult and I don’t know where the motivation came from to keep trying.  It started out as just a plain cheesy whole wheat muffin and this is what the end result ended up being.  I swear, I do make plans before I go into the kitchen and somehow they all get changed!

In one of my other attempts (which was still edible just waaaay too moist and not very pretty) I used jalapeno peppers.  Sadly I didn’t have enough for the next 2 tries, but sweet peppers are delicious in these too.  Given the choice I think I’d chose jalapenos though – so yummy!  But I’ll leave it up to you 🙂

These sounds great! Love the flavors… They are such convenient snacks to carry with you, also good with a big bowl of soup.

This is such an interesting idea. I really like it! I think I’ll try it with hot peppers, as I’m not a fan of sweet ones. Sounds like the perfect accompaniment to a spicy dinner 🙂

What a fun side for chili in place of cornbread!
