|Corn Fritters with Black Bean Salsa|
Corn Fritters with Black Bean Salsa
I used this basic recipe for the fritters-replace the corn and cheese with just about any other veggie and cheese.
Makes 12 small fritters
1t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. Worcestershire
dash hot sauce
milk as needed (usually 1/4 to 1/2 c.)
Mix all ingredients well until you have a thick batter.
Fold in 1 1/2 c. corn kernels-cooked and drained
3/4 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Drop by the tablespoon onto a hot, lightly greased (I like olive oil spray) griddle and fry until puffed and browned. Keep warm on paper towels while you fry the remainder. Top with salsa, sour cream and green onion.
Black Bean Salsa
1 can (15 oz) black beans-rinsed and drained
1 cup corn kernels
1 1/2 c prepared salsa (I like fresh-below)
extra minced garlic
Mix and chill for an hour or so to blend flavors.
3 large ripe tomatoes skinned, seeded, and chopped
1 small white onion chopped
3 garlic cloves minced
jalapeno or Serrano chiles (as many as you like) stemmed,
seeded, and chopped (or 1 small can of chopped mild green chiles)
1/4c. chopped cilantro or flat-leaf parsley
1t. kosher salt
1t. sugar if the tomatoes are acidic
Combine all and mix well.
Allow flavors to blend for at least 1 hr.
Taste for seasoning and serve at room temperature.
Refrigerate unused portion.
Thanks for passing by. :)
Looks like this father of five (who only cooks two days a week) has another place to visit to get some recipe ideas.
That looks and sounds really yummy! I may have to add that to my menu for next week. :)
I love corn fritters and with black bean salsa, I think it sounds great (and will raise the health factor!) I noticed some delicious fresh corn at my market so maybe I'll put it to good use!
That looks delicious. I'll have to try it! Love your blog!
OH yummy. That's all I have to say about that.
Hey Anne, have you ever read A Meal Observed by Andrew Todhunter? I think it would be beloved by you. I bought it for my sister (the one in my family who loves to cook) and she nearly ate the book.
Guys, they were GOOD. LOL
Jenni-no, but you intrigued me so I looked it up and KNOW that I'd love to read it!
mmmmmmm... OK.. need to make that this week. Why is it that I ALWAYS forget to look at veggie wed?
BTW the eggplant mozzerella recipe got 2 thumbs up...yummo! Thanks
These look fab! A "must make" for me. Thank you!
Your fresh salsa recipe is really close to how I make mine. My slight changes: I use red onion for the extra bite, I add a dash of cumin, a teaspoon-ish of olive oil, and my favorite addition: diced avocado. It adds a yummy flavor and some great healthy fats. If you do let the flavors mix, make sure to add the avocado just before serving. My favorite place to use this salsa: fish tacos!
