Crunchy Bacon and Green Chile Muffins Preparation

In a skillet, cook bacon until crispy; drain, reserve the drippings. Crumble the bacon; set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar and baking powder. Make a well in the center. Measure the drippings, add vegetable oil, if necessary to measure 1/3 cup. Combine the drippings with the egg and milk. Add to the flour mixture and stir until moist. Batter will be lumpy. Carefully fold in the bacon, cheese and green chile. Use the amount of green chile to your taste. Grease muffin tins and fill about 3/4 full. Bake in a 400 deg oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
