Served alongside a hearty chili, or eaten as a mid-day snack, these savory muffins are packed with flavor and are sure to satisfy!
Once milk has soured, combine wet and dry ingredients then stir in the remaining vegetables (reserve some of the corn and chilies to sprinkle on top).
Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full (use a spring-loaded ice cream scoop for the perfect portion size), then sprinkle on the reserved corn/peppers. Chill in fridge for 30 minutes – this will give the batter time for the flours to absorb the liquids, preventing a gritty texture.
Once baked, brush tops with a bit of melted butter for flavor and to keep the tops from drying out.
