If you’re looking for a fun, tasty side dish that goes perfectly with almost any meal, these Honey-Jalapeño Quinoa Cheese Muffins are it! A squeeze of honey makes them sweet, chopped jalapeño makes them spicy and cheese makes them savory and addictively good. Thanks to GOYA® Organic Black Quinoa, these muffins are nutritious too, since the quinoa bumps up the protein, fiber and iron content of these little treats. Make them for dinner and serve them warm, or wrap them up and bring them on your next picnic for a side dish that everyone will want to try.
