Jalapeno Hush Puppies

**I was doing some blog maintenance and noticed this was the most popular recipe on here! So I decided to repost it for those who haven't seen it!**

My husband and son love these. I don't make them often but when I do, they don't last long. You can use more or less jalapeno, depending on the heat level you would like. Always be careful chopping jalapenos and don't bring your hands near your face or wear gloves. This recipe is from southernfood.about.com.

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1-2 chopped jalapeno peppers or mild chiles, as desired

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Preheat deep fryer to 365-375. Drop by teaspoonfuls and fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve.
