  • 2 c. fresh corn kernels
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded, diced
  • 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. grated cheese
  • 1/4 c. cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lime, zest and juiced
  • 2 T. butter, bacon grease, or oil — for frying
  • Diced tomatoes mixed with chopped basil — for serving (optional)

Mix the corn, jalapeños, flour, egg, grated cheese, cream cheese, smoked paprika, ground coriander, garlic, zest, and lime juice in a bowl.

Form the mixture into patties, each containing about 2 tablespoons of the mixture.
