Jalapeno Fritters

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by DailyInspiration

Recipe is from my America's Best Recipes cookbook. A very different deep-fried spicy hush puppy that combines chili spices with mushrooms and jalapenos. Definitely not a low cal or carb recipe, but it does sound delish!

Made for lunch today for after church lunch. I did leave out the salt, but enjoyed the addition of chili powder, and cumin, did sense the flavor from the chili powder. Very flavorful. Made for New Zaar.
