Johnny Jalapeno's Ride Em Cowboy Corncakes

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

Like the California gold rush, cowboys ride like the wind to get to JJ's wild & crazy explosions of flavor in these corncakes. So git ya a big spoon and come dig in! You can use full flavored ingredients, we just tried to lower the calories/fat with some ingredients.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. BATTER: Mix all batter ingredients well (you should have about 2 cups).
  2. Heat griddle to medium and grease lightly (or use spray butter). Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto hot griddle to total 8 pancakes (do in batches if necessary).
  3. Top each equally with bacon, jalapenos, and cheddar. When bubbles begin to appear on the edges of the cakes (about 1-2 minutes and making sure the bottom is thoroughly cooked), Carefully flip them over and cook the other side (about 1-2 minutes). Do not pat down the pancakes!
  4. Flip cakes topping side up onto serving plates. Top each with the butter, picante, & sour cream. Drizzle lightly with maple syrup, and serve.

These corncakes are great! My only complaint is I think it would be better to add the bacon, cheese and jalapenos to the batter and then put the batter on the griddle. I used Pepperjack cheese instead of the cheddar and was fabulous. Made for Please Review My recipe cooking tag game.

Great and fun recipe! I used just a tiny bit of syrup and it was good with the salsa and sour cream topping for the corncakes. I think these would also be great with a fried egg on top. You could serve these for breakfast but for us they made a nice hearty dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I cut the recipe in half & served these for breakfast for the 2 of us! Also made the recipe pretty much as given & was pleasantly surprised that we both enjoyed these nicely unusual 'cakes very much! Certainly wouldn't mind making them for overnight guests sometime! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
