Jalapeno Hushpuppies

They're hot. They're cool. Everyone wants you to bring your Jalapeño Hushpuppies recipe to the gathering, along with the Hushpuppies of course!

It's a great side dish, picnic food idea, and theme party item in one but, alas, you can't wear them on your feet.

Jalapeno Hushpuppies

1 1/2 cups yellow and/or white cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup finely chopped jalapeno peppers
Oil for deep frying

Stir together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until blended.

Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of the mixture into hot (350°) oil. Fry the hushpuppies for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown, turning once during cooking.

Remove the hushpuppies from the oil and drain on paper towels.

Makes about 30 hushpuppies.
