Daily Inspiration

Made these corn muffins tonight to go with dinner and with some soup this week. Enjoyed the addition of the chili powder. Since you mentioned they were a bit on the dry side, I added a couple of tbsp. of sour cream to the mix and a small can of diced green chilies to add more moisture. They turned out pretty well. I think some creamed corn might work well to moisten them too. Certainly a recipe worth making again.
