Tonight I set fire and flavor to my hush puppies. I have not researched to find out if it has been done before. I have seen Jalapeno Hush Puppies which call for flour and corn meal. I do not add flour in these.
My Yelping Chihuahua’s were tasty! I want to document exactly how I made these pups!
1 cup Self rising corn meal
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup of olive oil
4 or five medium sized Jalapenos
and one thick slice of sweet onion chopped finely
1/3 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese grated
Heat about a quart and half canola or peanut oil in fryer.
In a medium bowl, mix together Corn meal, Buttermilk, oil and egg. Stir until mixed well.
Add onions, cheese and jalapenos.and stir until mixed well.
Form into balls just a little smaller than golf balls.
Place balls one at a time into hot oil and cook until brown. Remove from oil onto a plate lined with a paper towel. Enjoy with your meal, or as an appetizer served with salsa.
These were not unbearably hot, but had a kick for sure.. The Jalapenos came from our garden and were picked this morning. Beau counter surfed a couple of Yelping Chihuahua’s. He sprinted to the water bowl immediately. Let’s hope he’s cured of this naughty habit.
