Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together corn, buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and diced green chilies. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Divide batter among 12 muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in centre of muffin comes out clean. Be careful not to overbake. Remove muffins from tin and cool slightly on a wire rack. Best served warm!
