Black Bean, Corn, and Cheddar Fritters

Black Bean, Corn, and Cheddar Fritters created by Striving Bean

Best served hot and crispy, right out of the pan, these fritters make a lovely light lunch served with a green salad, or a more hearty meal when served with Recipe #336469. They can also be a nice appetizer! Serve the fritters with sour cream and/or salsa on the side! I measured the oil after frying, so that the nutritional information would accurately reflect the oil used - you should start with 1/2 cup when frying, though!

ingredients

directions

  • Sift together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Beat the milk with the egg yolk, and add it to the dry ingredients, mixing well.
  • Stir in the beans, cheese, corn, cilantro, red pepper, and green chilies.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff. Gently fold them into the batter.
  • Heat 1/2 cup oil in a 10-inch iron skillet over medium-high heat. (Test the heat by dropping a bit of batter into the oil; it should immediately sizzle and rise to the top.).
  • Spoon in about 1/4 cup of batter for each fritter, making three or four at a time. Fry until golden brown on one side, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and fry until golden brown on the other side, and drain on paper towels. Fry the rest of the batter in batches.
  • Serve immediately with sour cream and salsa on the side.

    Can these be made ahead, frozen and then reheated in the oven?
