Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

These muffins are the perfect accompaniment to the Vegetarian Chili recipe below. They are a double whammy because you bite into them to cool down the chili burn but they bite you back, like that car that 'turns you on' when you 'turn it on.' "Are you kidding me? ANOTHER muffin?" Yes we are making another muffin dipshit. You could spread this recipe out in some pyrex (glass baking dish ignoramus) OR you could have individual servings in muffin form. This is a no-brainer, at least to me. What about you? Let's begin:

In large bowl combine 1c cornmeal, 1c flour, 1/2c brown sugar, 2tbl baking powder, 1tsp salt, 2 diced jalapenos and 1/3c canned corn (frozen or fresh will fuck it all up). In a smaller bowl combine 3/4c buttermilk (I bought some especially for this), 2 eggs, and 1/2c sour cream. Fold the wet into the dry. "Fold?" Sigh. With a rubber spatula turn the wet over into the dry repeatedly while turning the bowl at the same time. Don't forget to breathe. Now fold in 1 sick of melted butter. Seriously, that was not a joke. Do it.

Pour into a sprayed muffin tin and bake at 350 deg for 20 min. Pop them out and place on a cooling rack after about 3 min.
