Cherry Tomato-Studded Jalapeno Corn Muffins

This is my submission to Root Source Challenge: Cherry Tomatoes.

Originally, I was going to make a cornbread strata with cherry tomatoes, cheese and jalapeno peppers. But then I ended up spending most of the weekend watching Nip/Tuck and had to make a few adjustments.

I ended up making cornbread muffins (using Jiffy mix) with quartered cherry tomatoes, jalapeno pepper, cheddar cheese and freshly ground pepper. The result is adorable :)

Give me some chili and these cornbread muffins and that would make a wonderful meal! They look scrumptious.

Mmmm, thanks for sharing! Quite yummy, although I'm not tasting the jalapeno at all (which is a good thing from my point of view, but probably not most people) Corn is always a great addition too, but I'm not sure they would have held together with any more add-ins.

Boy those look yummy. I never thought to put cherry tomatoes in there. Why not right?
