  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease muffin pans.
  • Sift together into a large bowl, corn meal, sugar, salt, flour and baking powder.
  • Add the egg, milk, butter, corn and cottage cheese and stir lightly, just to mix and moisten all ingredients.
  • Divide half of batter among the muffin pans.
  • Now spread the chopped chilies evenly across the batter and cover with the grated Cheddar cheese.
  • Pour remaining batter over top to seal. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  • Additional Information

    If any of the Cheddar melts down the sides of the muffin tins, these may be a bit tricky to remove, but carefully sliding a knife around the muffins should do the trick.
