Confetti Herb Muffins: Not Your Same Ol' Cornbread

Want something a little different than the same ol' cornbread with your soups and chili?  Try these delicious herbed muffins.  There is no cornmeal in this recipe so it's a nice variation from the usual dinner muffin.  The addition of diced sweet red pepper and poblano make them both flavorful and colorful!  A great addition to any meal.
The Confetti Herb Muffin Party!
Combine first 7 ingredients and set aside.
I think I forgot to tell you that 1
stick of unsalted butter is invited to the party.

Saute onions and peppers in butter until tender.

With an electric mixer, combine sour cream,
eggs and Dijon mustard.
Cook onions, peppers and parsley
in butter for 10 minutes.
Add sauteed vegetable mixture to mixing bowl.
Add dry ingredients until just moistened.
Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. 
I like to use my large cookie scoop
to make sure they all get the same
amount and come out the same size!
Bake for 15-20 minutes
