  • 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.
