Southwest Corn Muffins with Spam

Southwest Corn Muffins with Spam

1 cup Yellow corn meal
1 cup Flour
1 T. Baking powder
2 T. Sugar
1 Egg
1 cup Milk
1 cup Creamed corn
1 can Spam (12 oz.) diced into 1/4 inch pieces
1 can Diced mild green chilies (4 oz.)
1/2 cup Jalapeno cheese, grated
1/2 cup Diced red bell pepper

Combine dry ingredients in bowl and mix well. Beat egg and milk together; add corn. Mix well. Add bell pepper, green chilies and cheese to dry ingredients, then add Spam that you have browned and drained on paper towels. Stir until just mixed. Pour into greased pans. Bake at 400 for 30 mins or until toothpick in center comes out clean. NOTE: This makes 6 very large muffins, 12 regular muffins or 24 very small muffins. You can also use an 8-inch square pan for the above batter.  But if you are going to go the mini-muffin route make sure you dice the Spam up small or it doesn't work as well.  Also, you can use regular cheese, the jalapeno cheese just kicks it up a notch.
