Most corn muffins accompany a hearty southern meal, but at Xtra Good Corn Muffins, they are the meal. Whipped up according to an old family recipe, each muffin is then stuffed with mouth-watering combinations including jerk tilapia with red beans and rice, Vienna beef hot dogs and cheddar cheese, or macaroni and cheese with battered crispy chicken. Sweet options such as peach- and blueberry-stuffed cornbread muffins and red velvet pancake minis also dot the menu, as do lemonades flavored with strawberries, kiwis, and peaches.

Raul Lopez always wanted to be a bullfighter. Growing up in Mexico City, he participated in the sport as much as possible, but economic reasons led him down an altogether different path—making tortillas. He brought this business—and the nickname “el torero,” which means bullfighter—with him when he moved to the United States in 1942. What began as a small operation peddling tortillas to his neighbors turned into El Milagro tortillas, still well known today for a spread of Mexican tortillas, chips, burrito shells, and caseras, distributed throughout the Midwest. True to Lopez’s original process, the company’s current staff—including his wife and seven of their children—grinds only the finest kernels to create their products; they never use processed corn flour or aged corn, despite impressive resumes that list previous work in popcorn bags. Locations throughout Chicago also sell fresh tacos atop Lopez’s famed tortillas.
