I’ve always loved spicy food. Perhaps it is because I’m Mexican and many of our dishes are spicy. But let’s be clear when I say spicy I don’t mean mouth burning spicy. I don’t like food which is so spicy that all you taste and feel is the acidity of the chilies. No, I want my food spicy but also want to be able to taste all the other flavors in the dish. Maybe what I consider spicy is mild to others, and maybe what I consider mild is spicy to others. My husband, who is not Mexican, thinks what I consider spicy is mild. I don’t agree with him but then again that is coming from someone (him) who has successfully eaten Phall Curry on several occasions. (If you’ve never heard of Phall look it up.)

The past month I’ve been craving nothing but spicy food. It seems like I can’t go more than a day or two without eating something spicy. Of course my chile-head husband isn’t complaining. That man could eat spicy with every meal and for days on end. How a Caucasian man can eat and tolerate heat like that is beyond me. Should I be embarrassed that he can tolerate chile more than I?

Needless to say this ongoing chile craving I’m having is making it’s way into almost all of our food. As I gathered the ingredients to make these eggless yogurt corn muffins I imagined how good they would taste with some chile. I know adding chiles, or jalapeños, to corn muffins isn’t anything new. But it was something I had been wanting to try. The muffins turned out great. They were a little spicy, crumbly on the outside, soft and moist on the inside. I know some of you don’t like corn bread or muffins because they tend to be dry, but that is not the case here. I think the yogurt is what helped these muffins come out softer then other batches.

Eggless Yogurt Corn Muffins

1 cup (140 g) corn meal
1 cup (140 g) a.p. flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1.5 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. light brown sugar
2 tbsp. melted butter or vegetable oil
1 cup (240 g) greek yogurt
1/2 cup (125ml) plus 2 tbsp. milk
1 small green chile, seeded and finely chopped- adjust to taste

1. Preheat oven to 180c or 350f, and prepare a muffin pan. In a large bowl sift together both of the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar, then set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the yogurt, milk, melted butter or oil, and green chile. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, until just combined. Pour the batter into the muffin pan, filling 3/4 of the way. Place in center of oven and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.

Allow to cool before serving.

The next day we had leftovers with cream cheese and Jalapeño Jelly. They were so, so good that I only wished I had another batch. Okay, let’s move on to May’s YBR signup.
