Hi everyone! This recipe that I found was a total gem, it's a melt in your mouth cheddar muffins with an unexpected kick from the serrano peppers. The original recipe called for jalapeños but i just love the extra kick from the serrano's(it totally wasn't because I only had that pepper in my fridge). i adapted this recipe from Joy the Baker and she has amazing recipe that you all should check out. So anyway, let's get down to business.
This recipe is pretty straightforward and uses mostly pantry staples and the end result is delicious, when still warm it has a gooey, cheesy inside. It is absolutely delicious and to die for, this would go great as appetizers or hors d'oeuvres for any party.
One tip, if you make these in paper liners then it'll stick when the muffins are warm, however, when they are room temp they'll come right out. I recommend just greasing a muffin tin well and they should slide right out. Hope you all enjoy!
Preheat over to 375 degrees fahrenheit or 190 degrees celsius.
