Quick Jalapeno Hush Puppies Recipe

The crunchy exterior of these Southern-style snacks is a nice contrast to the moist corn bread. Jalapeno pepper and hot sauce add a hint of heat.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:30 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • Oil for deep-fat frying


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat the eggs, milk, jalapenos, onion and hot sauce. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined.
  • 2. In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375°. Drop tablespoonfuls of batter, a few at a time, into hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
