Peppery Hush Puppies
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min.
Very tasty! Despite the jalapenos, I did not find these spicy.
Made these tonight to go with fried crappie and they were delicious! The jalapenos and onion made them very flavorful!
A friend of mine told me years ago to grate the onions instead of chopping them. It makes a big difference. The juice from the grated onions is good too.
I wrote this recipe down on paper a couple of years ago and never put into my recipe til now, bad habit I need to break myself of. It was the jalapenos that got my attention to begin with. We simply do not like fish and never eat it but these are great to serve up with so many other things including as appetizers or snacks.
These hush puppies had a perfect crispness on the outside with a light and fluffy texture in the middle. The peppers gave a welcomed spicy pop to the traditional flavor.
Remove sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and all purpose flour.Change flour to self rising.you can also purchase the jalapeno already diced...I deep fry mine a little higher temp.Also, use a cup of water to dip your spoon in, allows the hush puppy to slide off of your spoon easily.And if you are deep frying fish, fry hush puppies last , this really adds to the taste...

I omitted the green pepper and put in two nice large jalapenos. These are beautifully light and crispy! The best!
Thank you for this recipe.So easy to make and so much compliments from the familie. There is left some batter in de frige, I try to make that tomorrow.Angelika from the Netherlands
excellent! I chose to make the green peppers optional and still had great raves. this has been put in my favorites file. These are also great to serve with a country meal of blackeyed peas or pintoes with mixed greens (turnip & mustard) and mashed potatoes. thanks for sharing your recipe.
