  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 24 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.* In 3-quart saucepan, heat water and butter over high heat to a full rolling boil. Remove from heat.
  • 2 Stir in flour, cornmeal and salt until mixture forms a dough and all lumps have disappeared. Gradually stir in beaten eggs until well blended. Stir in both cheeses and the chiles. Spoon dough evenly into muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.
  • 3 Bake 25 to 29 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from muffin cups. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

If two 12-cup muffin pans are unavailable, spoon dough into pan; refrigerate remaining dough while baking first pan. Spoon refrigerated dough into pan; bake 28 to 35 minutes.

These puffs make a delicious accompaniment for any tossed or main-dish salad.

A No. 20 or 24 spring-handled ice-cream scoop can make quick and neat work of spooning the dough into the muffin cups. The number stands for the number of level scoops you can get from 1 quart of ice cream.
