Cajun Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Fritters

Pin It Now!

 Oh BOY, Corn Fritters...

But not just any corn fritters, these are LOADED with plenty of extras.

Corn, Cheddar and Jalapeno Peppers of course, but the seasoning I like to use is the classic OLD BAY Crab seasoning.  In the past I have used a Taco spice mix (worked great), a Cajun mix (worked great) and even just plain Salt and Pepper (Also worked great).  But the unique flavor profile of Old bay just hits the spot!

 I always seem to make these whenever I am frying fish.. I have the oil going already, why not plop in some cornbread.

While the ingredient list is a bit long for a cornbread, most of what is there are pantry ingredients.  Frozen corn, Jiffy Mix Box, even the cheese, peppers and sour cream are pretty much items I either keep in stock or buy fresh weekly.

This recipe is a WINNER!

Enjoy indeed.

 OK... Here's what I did...

Cowboy Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Muffins

  • 1 Box Jiffy Mix Cornbread
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 Jalapeno Peppers, Seeds and inner white membrane (the really Hot Spiced parts) removed, chopped to a fine mince
  • 1 Cup Frozen Corn kernels, thawed under hot water for a few minutes.
  • 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 TBS Old Bay Seasoning mix
  • Canola Oil for frying.  Enough to cover the bottom of the pan, only about 1/2 inch
Cooking Directions
  1. Heat oil in a large heavy bottomed frying pan, Cast Iron works great.  Oil needs to splatter when a drop or two of water is added.  But not too violent of a splatter,
  2. Combine the cornbread mix with the sour cream and egg.
  3. Add Jalapeno, Corn, Cheddar and the Old Bay Spice mix.  Stir to combine.
  4. Drop 1 rounded TBS of the mix into the oil and Fry until golden brown on each side for 3-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  5. Serve warm and ENJOY!
