This winter cornbread muffin recipe has a couple of options.

One, you can either make 12 large muffins or 24 mini muffins.

In addition, you can add jalapeño slices to the top of your muffins if desired. I added the jalapeños 1/2 of my mini muffins.

I prefer the mini muffins because I like the bite-size serving better.

Also, I love the combination of the sweet cornbread mixed with the spicy jalapeños.

However, I usually make a combination to accommodate those who don’t like their food spicy.

Rachel, I believe Jiffy does have the best boxed cornmeal mixture. Can't wait to try this recipe and I do like the mini size....
