If you don't want to travel all the way to Mexico to get a cornballer on the black market, you can just make this tasty snack in any deep frying situation. I assume that the cornballs in question are similar to a hush puppy, so that was the approach I took making this recipe. They came out great and were a fun app for our little Arrested Development party. Yo soy loco por los cornballs!
I had Kim cut up some jalapenos for me, because as Michael says, making cornballs is a bonding experience for family and friends. Kim wasn't too busy to help, unlike George Michael.
Cornmeal, cheese, corn, and the jalapeno.
Be careful when frying your cornballs!
Crunchy, salty, and tender on the inside.
I think ketchup was the preferred sauce for these. You are gonna have to wait till Thursday for more info on the other pictured sauce.
Snacks as we watched a few episodes.
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
15 pickled jalapenos
about one ears worth of corn
1/2 cup grated cheddar
Splash of milk
Mix all the ingredients together and add a little more milk if it needs the wetness to hold itself together. Deep fry in ball shapes until browned, about 4 minutes each. Serve with some ketchup, mayo, bbq, salsa, or other dip.
