Take-out Tuesday, Julie’s Creamy Corn Muffins

What a weekend, the controverisal Kentucky Derby, Cinco de Mayo and a dance recital, and Monday baseball playoff game, not much time for cooking but I did make these muffins for our Cinco de Mayo Sunday Supper

The original plan was Chicken Fajitas with Enchilada Rice Casserole, but I really wanted to make these muffins.  HHjr said, “How about I make a Chicken Fajita Salad instead?”

Yes please!

These muffins are soooooo easy to make,

in 5 minutes they are ready to put in the oven

Mix everything together in a large bowl

Scoop into a paper lined muffin pan

Bake for 30 minutes

These muffins are lighter than cornbread and very moist


I got the recipe from my friend Julie @Julie’s Creative Lifestyle

Thank you Julie!

I halved her recipe and substituted evaporated milk for milk

Julie’s Creamy Corn Muffins


  • 1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • 1 can 8.75 oz, corn kernels, drained
  • 1 can 8.25 oz, creamed corn
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk or evaporated milk
  • 1 egg
  • salt & pepper


  • Mix everything together in a large mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  • Put muffin papers into a muffin pan and fill about 2/3 full of batter.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, checking after 25 minutes, until muffins are just done.  Serve warm.

HHjr made the salad and I don’t have photos of the process, but here’s his recipe/method if you are interested, it was incredibly delicious!

Chicken Fajita Salad Bowl

  • Fry or bake large tortillas, forming into a bowl by baking inverted on a oven safe bowl, or forming into a bowl shape in your fryer basket
  • Grill chicken.  While chicken is grilling heat refried black beans and season with taco seasoning and keep warm.  Sprinkle taco seasoning on vegetables and saute in a little olive oil until soft and done.  When chicken is done, shred or chop.

    I am going to make these muffins for sure. They are much lighter and a better summer recipe than the made from scratch cornbread I sometimes make. Your weekend was busy but it was a fun weekend. Hope you’ve found a few minutes to relax…….

  8. I want that as my first meal after I go off my pre-wedding diet!! Have a wonderful week, Jenna.

    Yummy! I have a very close recipe but we just put it in a casserole dish and bake and it is so good, too. Hubby loves it so I know the muffins would be a hit as well. The salad sounds wonderful! Pinning! 😋
