Team Match-Up


Chili and Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins are teamed up for a cold January afternoon of watching sports. This spicy, flavorful chili is from the cookbook classic The Silver Palate. And since it's Tuesday this must be Tuesdays With Dorie.


Moist, flavorful and just the right kick, is what I look for in a corn muffin. Making them is basic muffin making: dry ingredients, wet ingredients, combine, don't overwork the batter and don't over-bake. Test muffin five minutes before they're supposed to be done with a knife inserted in middle muffin of muffin pan. Ovens vary, occasionally check the temperature too. Out of the oven, ready to eat. Bowl of chili waiting with a dollop of sour cream...


Now, if only the Giants made it to the finish!
