1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, plus more for greasing tins

4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 1/4 cups milk (whole milk is best)  

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

2 cups grated sharp Cheddar

One 4.5-ounce can diced green chiles


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease two 12-cup muffin tins with butter.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until all combined. Whisk together the milk, oil and eggs in a separate bowl. Combine the flour mixture, milk mixture, Cheddar and green chiles in a large bowl. Stir gently until combined.
  3. Spoon the batter into the prepared tins. Bake until golden, 20 to 22 minutes. Remove from the tins and serve warm.
