jalapeño + corn fritters

If you’ve been reading our blog for awhile now or know us personally, you are fully aware that we like our food with a little kick! When jalapeños were found in our most recent, CSA box, I was eager to make poppers… but, our peppers were a bit too small to stuff with cream cheese and wrap with bacon. So what did I do? I hit up Pinterest for some recipes that call for jalapeños, and found this recipe at ClosetCooking.com. It sounded delicious and aside from a few ingredients, I had everything at home.

Of course, a good friend once suggested substituting ingredients that you don’t have around for kitchen staples. So with a bit of a tweak (not to be confused with twerk) and a pinch less of coriander, I made something similar to the recipe mentioned above.


These fritters? Definitely one for the books! They were so delicious and a huge hit. And aside from greasing up my stovetop, they were super easy too!



1/2 cup of flour
1 egg
1 can of corn (15.2 oz., drained)
1/2 cup of cheddar cheese (shredded)
1/4 cup of cream cheese (softened)
2-4 jalapeños (diced)
2 slices of bacon (cooked + crumbled)
1 teaspoon of paprika
2 green onions (diced)
1 handful of cilantro (chopped)
1 lime (juice)


One. Combine and mix the flour, egg, corn, jalapeños, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, bacon, paprika, green onions, cilantro, and lime juice.

Two. Heat oil over medium – low heat, form into patties, and cook approximately 4 – 6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Three. Serve with avocado slices and jalapeño popper dressing.

I followed the jalapeño popper dressing to a tee, but it was a little strong for both of us. Personally, I think the clove of garlic was a bit to much for us – and that’s coming from garlic lovers, but overall it was a great combination. Next time, I’ll probably minimize the amount of garlic in the dressing, but one thing is for sure – there will be a next time. It was too delicious not to share and definitely going to be a regular on the menu.
