I had mixed feelings about this recipe. One thing I noticed was that you can really taste the beer, which I wasn't too crazy about. These were good for a change of pace but I don't think I will be making them again, they just aren't right for my tastes. Thanks for the recipe though, it was fun making hush puppies for the first time.

These were so good!! Next time I will add more jalapeno to give them a little more KICK!! Loved them! Thanks!

Although this recipe says in the description that the hushpuppies are crunchy, I found them to be alittle on the tough side, other than that they were pretty good.(I may have done something wrong to cause mine to be tough, I'm not sure) also after making the first batch I noticed that it needed a bit more salt so I added more to the batter. I like the flavor of the beer,jalapeno and onions though. Thanks for sharing!
