Ok, this is really just the start.... hopefully it will get some others to thinking.
 
I'll call this Champurrado-Inspired Corn Muffins
 
Champurrado is what some know as "Mexican hot chocolate" - a chocolate version of the popular atole drink. Champurrado includes masa in the recipe. You can use your favorite search engine to find many, many Champurrado recipes, but here's a link to one if you are feeling lazy. Anyhow, this illustrates what South- and Latin-Americans have known for a long time - that chocolate and corn just go together. Although Champurrado is sweet, I added no sugar to this. Oh, hogleg, I am just making this up as I go along, so your guess is as good as mine!
 
 1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon cilantro
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk (may need more or less)
1 egg
1 cup grated Mexican 4-cheese mix
1 8-oz can cream-style corn
 
In a bowl, stir together all dry ingredients. Whisk in the egg and 1/3 cup of milk. Add a bit more milk if the batter is too stiff. Gently stir in the cream corn and cheese. If needed, add more milk to yield a batter consistency the same as for regular corn muffins. (It's going to be a little thick, but not too thick.) Let the batter rest while you preheat the oven to 400F. Line a muffin tin with foil muffin papers and spray with no-stick. Fill the muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in pan a few minutes, then remove from pan and cool further on a wire rack. Spread on some melted butter and enjoy!
 
Corn muffin mix and seasonings. This pic has only 1 tablespoon of chocolate but I added another tablespoon after mixing this together.

In goes the cream-style corn and cheese (the corn is under the cheese)

The finished muffins - these are pillow-soft tender

These are tasty on their own, but adding butter really pushes them over the top - YUM!

Changed my mind......

 

Going with a Guinness Extra Stout instead of the Killians:

I think it'll go well with the chocolate.

I think we watched the same video recipe.....Looks tasty already with the ingredients :cheers:

 

I saw Guiness in the original recipe and see you changed to that now, I was going to use a chocolate malt I saw instead.  

 

Good luck, it looked excellent.

     Wow. That got out of control in rapid fashion. :shocked: Anybody got a phone number for a good lawyer? Also, Scovie, I'm going to need your car for a little while.

I might be the guy that makes a mole... never had it. I got the kids and no time to go grocery shopping so i'm winging it with what I have on hand. Thin sliced skirt steak should be defrosted by now.

Find me on Instagram

 

Can I help it if I'm one of those fanatical TD fans?I got my #3 Demonic jersey on, my face is painted, and I cant stop yelling WOOOOOO!!

I just made a mole, too shy to expose myself here though. Besides, I'm told to let it age at least 24 hours before unleashing it on an unsuspecting public..... :crazy:  :drunk:
