I always use jalapenos, you could use red bell pepper or nothing at all, no need to replace them with other ingredients!

Margielynn, What do you do when you don't include jalapeños in your deliciously green onion and cheddar cheese cornbread muffins? Do you increase the amounts of cheese and onions or do you include something else?
