|For the muffins:|
melted, 4 tablespoons
or to taste, canned and chopped
|For the savory cream cheese frosting:|
minced, or green parts of scallions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).
Line a standard sized muffin tin (12 muffins) with paper cups or coat with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, add the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl, whisk until mix well.
In another bowl, whisk the eggs, then whisk in the milk, melted butter, and jalapenos until well blended.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just incorporated.
Put the batter evenly among the prepared muffin tin.
Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned with a tooth pick or wooden stick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Transfer on a wire rack, and let cool for about 10 minutes.
Remove the muffins on wire rack, and allow to cool completely.
Add the cream cheese in a bowl, stir until smooth.
Stir in the chives until evenly mix.
Frost the muffins and sprinkle chopped bell peppers on top of each muffin.
Serve and enjoy.
