Mexican Cornbread Muffins with Bell Peppers & Corn

You have NO idea how much I LOVE these Mexican cornbread muffins. I’ve made them at least 10 times and tested it with picky eaters as well as sophisticated palates. It is the ultimate comfort food that’s nutritious and delicious.
It features a beautiful crisp golden-brown crust that packs flavour with every bite. An array of spices including coriander, cumin, and cayenne, as well as extra veggies to keep it nice and moist, jazzes up a traditional cornbread recipe. It pairs well with just about anything, especially soups and stews. Don’t come after me if you eat half a dozen before it cools down!
