Following on from the success of my famous Marmite and cheese muffins recipe I decided to spice things up a bit, literally, with some chorizo and chillies.

I present to you my super quick and easy to make spicy chorizo and cheese muffins…

The ingredients you’ll need:

  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 7tbsp milk
  • 50g melted butter
  • Roughly 1/2 a chorizo sausage, finely chopped
  • Approx. 70g grated mature cheese
  • Dried chilli flakes (quantity dependent on how spicy you want your muffins)

If you want to make a larger batch then simply double the quantities.

Pre-heat over to 200 degrees/gas mark 6.

Recipe:

  1. Fry off the chorizo in a dry pan then leave to cool a bit.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, salt and chilli flakes.
  3. Add the grated cheese and chorizo.
  4. Add the milk and beaten egg to the melted butter.
  5. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix together.
  6. Spoon into a mini muffin baking tray (I prefer silicone trays).
  7. Cook for approx 10-12 mins.

They’re best served warm straight out the oven or if they’re cool, heat them up in the microwave for about 10 seconds. If you give these muffins a go, please let me know what you think in the comments below.
