Celebrating soccer wins with Mac & Cheese Chorizo Cornbread Muffins

Whether you call it soccer or futbol, the games are here and you've got to be prepared for some big game recipes for your family cookouts and gatherings! I've been trying to find some new quick and easy appetizers that my kids will love, besides our go-to guacamole and chips and I was inspired by this Macaroni Cornbread Muffin recipe. However, I wanted to add some more sabor and flavor to it, so I switched it up a bit, adding some spicier ingredients and making it a little easier to make.

So, this week, while in Walmart buying the mass amounts of food my children and husband consume during the Summer Break, I picked up the ingredients to make this new Cornbread Mac & Cheese Chorizo Muffins. Maybe I should have called it Mac & Cheese Chorizo Cornbread Muffins...but they both sound delicious to me!

The ingredient list is as follows: box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, a box of Cornbread Muffin Mix, a package of Mexican chorizo, jalapeños, pico de gallo, panko breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and chili powder.

First, I prepared the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and Mexican Chorizo separately and as directed.

Second I prepped the Cornbread Muffin Mix as directed, but only placed about 1/3 of the tin full, then baked. I cut the baking time on the muffin mix in half. It was a total of 20 minutes, so I baked just the muffins for 10 minutes.

Third, during the baking time, I made the Panko breadcrumb mix: 1/2 cup of Panko breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon of melted butter, salt, pepper and chili powder to taste.

Fourth, after the baking was done, I added a scoop of the Macaroni, a scoop of the chorizo, a bit of pico de gallo (optional), then topped with the Panko breadcrumbs mix a jalapeño (totally optional) and put back in the oven for another 10 minutes (the second half of the baking time).

And then out the oven they came! #CollectiveBias made a huge #GolazoKraft with these bites!
Paired up with some Capri Sun drinks, the kids will grab and go! By the way, did you see that Capri Sun pouches have a clear bottom, so you can see what the drink actually looks like!

It is the pareja perfecta for me!

I hope you enjoy quality family time with this meal and the summer games!

Here's a fun little video on Instagram on how I made the muffins:

Buen Provecho!
