TWD: Savory Corn Muffins..
Hmm. I learned two things with this week's TWD: don't rush through a recipe (okay, I learned that a long time ago. I forgot it this week) and never use too much chile powder.
The recipe is easy to put together. If you're not rushing. I over indulged in the chile powder category, hence the hue of the muffins...A touch of chile powder nice: too much, not so nice.
I over measured it and could have fished it out, but I wasn't using a jalapeno, so I thought: leave it in...The taste is overwhelming.
What I do love is that the whole corn kernels really push the corn taste and the minced sweet red and orange pepper (what I had in the fridge) and the flecks of green really dress these muffins up (look hard; if you look past that hue of chile powder, you'll see all those flecks)...
I'd like to try these again when I'm not rushing to get them on the table for dinner.
