Easy Beer Cheese Muffins with Green Chiles

It is soup season at our house. We love to eat cornbread with soup and chili, but last week I made these yummy Green Chile Beer Cheese Muffins to go with our Pulled Pork Vegetable Soup. O-M-YUM! SO good. Beer bread muffins loaded with cheese and green chiles. I mean how could they be bad? These are already back on the menu this weekend.

How to Make Beer Cheese Muffins

These muffins are super easy to make. Start with placing about a teaspoon of oil in each muffin cup. Place the muffin pan in the oven and preheat the oven. While the pan is heating up, whisk together flour, baking powder, cumin, sugar, and salt. Add in the beer and stir in the diced green chiles and cheese. Remove the pan from the oven. Use a large cookie scoop and scoop the batter into the hot pan and bake.

  • Can use any beer you prefer. I used Michelob Ultra. I suggest a light beer so the flavor doesn’t overpower the bread.
  • You can use any cheese you like – cheddar, Monterey jack, pepper jack, white cheddar.
  • I prefer to make these in a metal muffin pan. It gets nice and hot and gives the muffins a nice crispy crust.
  • Can make mini muffins. You will need to adjust the cooking time down as the smaller muffins won’t take as much time.
  • Can I freeze beer cheese muffins? Yes! You can freeze the leftover beer cheese muffins for a quick side later. To reheat, pop in the microwave or wrap in aluminum foil and bake at 350ºF for 30 to 40 minutes, until warm.
  • Are the muffins spicy? No. There is no heat in these muffins. If you want spicy muffins, swap the green chiles for some diced jalapeños.

    1. Well, it’s a beer bread recipe, so you kinda need it. The yeast in the beer interacts with the sugar to help the bread to rise. I am not a beer drinker either. You can’t taste it in the finished recipe.
