Servings: 6 servings
- 3/4 cups milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons cornmeal
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 4 cups corn niblets
- 1/4 cup applewood smoked cheddar shredded
- 2 tablespoons green onion finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons jalapeno finely chopped
- 1/4 cup salted butter
Use a whisk to blend the milk and eggs in a large bowl.
Add the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt to the eggs and milk mixture. Use a spoon or spatula to mix it well.
Add the corn niblets, cheddar, green onion and jalapeno to the batter and mix until combined.
Add 2 tablespoons of the butter to a skillet and heat it at medium-high. When the pan is hot and butter is melted, drop spoonfuls of about 2-3 tablespoons of batter into the butter. Fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, then flip.
Work in batches, adding more butter as needed, to fry all the fritters.
To make the sauce, combine the sour cream, chipotle powder, and lime. Mix well and serve with the fritters.
