These lovely little cornmeal muffins have quite a kick to them, it's the jalapeno peppers! A very simple and easy recipe that goes so well with chili, stews, soups, chilli con carne or when served as an appetiser snack - split them in two and spread with savoury butters or serve with dips. I made these up as an experiment, and they turned out so well, that I am on my third batch already!
