Corn Muffins with Poblano Peppers

These corn muffins are good with just a dab of butter but they are great with another dab of red jalapeño jelly. I guess in this case I followed the mantra we hear often today, "Go Big or Go Home." These are truly big on the pepper, but oh so good, too!

Directions

Position the oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 regular-sized muffin cups with paper or foil liners.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until well blended. Combine the buttermilk and sour cream in a small bowl.

Add the eggs and oil to the milk-sour cream mixture and mix with a fork until well blended. Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and add the poblano peppers, corn kernels, and 2/3 cup of the queso fresco. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold (no stirring) until just blended.

Portion the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups (¼ cup of batter per cup will be about ¾ of the way full).

Sprinkle the tops with the remaining queso fresco and then top each muffin with a jalapeño slice and a halved tomato. Bake until the tops are pale golden brown and a pick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 18-20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes.

Serve immediately or cool completely and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. They are best served warm so please reheat before serving.
