How to Make It

Step 1

Pour 2 inches of oil into a 4-quart saucepan. Warm over medium heat until a deep-fry or candy thermometer reads 375°F.

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk pancake mix, cornmeal, salt, pepper, cumin and cayenne. Gently stir in corn, red onion, bell pepper, jalapeño chilies and 1 1/3 cups water.

Step 3

With a spoon, scoop about 2 Tbsp. batter and gently push into hot oil with another spoon; avoid splashing oil. Cook 4 or 5 fritters at a time-any more may result in greasy fritters.

Step 4

Cook until brown and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes, turning once with tongs to brown evenly. Remove with tongs and drain on a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve hot.

Yum! I guess they updated the recipe since the other comments, so I tried it. It was tasty, but we thought it tasted more like a fluffy southwestern hush puppy than corn fritters. I'd add a little more corn...and maybe next time even a touch of sugar since I prefer a sweeter corn dish, but this was a fantastic base! Word of warning though, these things soak up oil pretty crazy, so either cook it for a shorter amount of time or make sure to drain well.
