Mexican Hush Puppies

A tasty deep fried treat with any BBQ or Southern meal, also very good with a fish fry. When deep firing, I put my Dutch oven In an oil change pan. It helps holed the heat in and will come to temperature much faster. I do the same for boiling water.

2 cups self-rising cornmeal
1 cup self-rising flour
3 tablespoons sugar
3 eggs, beaten lightly
½ cup milk
1 (14¾-ounce) can cream-style corn
6 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups onion, chopped
2 jalaeƱo peppers, seeded and chopped
2 teaspoons chili powder
Vegetable oil

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; make a well in the center of the dry mixture. Combine eggs and next 6 ingredients in a medium mixing bowl; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Pour oil to depth of about 2 to 3 inches in a 12' Dutch oven; heat to 375°f, about 20 charcoals under oven. (use a candy thermometer) Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls into hot oil; fry hush puppies, a few at a time 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.Drain on paper towels.
