papa's sour cream cornbread

My grandfather makes the best cornbread in the world. We've been eating it like crazy in our house for a couple weeks now. It's an easy, easy recipe, and it makes the most moist cornbread muffins I've ever had.

You can leave out the jalapenos to make it less spicy, but we love them. There's just the right amount of bite to the muffins with the jalapenos in them.

Thanks for sharing your recipe with us, Papa! We love you!!
