Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread

I made these jalapeño cheddar cornbread muffins to go with Meredith Cranch‘s Dumbo Gumbo. We were celebrating LSU’s victory over Alabama and chicken and sausage gumbo with cornbread seemed just the thing!

This recipe is super easy!

Cranch’s awesome gumbo. I asked her secret… She replied Tony Chachere’s.
