Expert Tips

This recipe also tastes delicious served in hard or soft shell tacos. Just omit the corn muffins.

If you like it really hot, use hot Mexican-style process cheese in place of the mild.

Make your evening meal a success by baking corn muffins the night before or purchasing them ahead of time.
