How to make it
- In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, cilantro, baking powder and salt. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk. See Photo
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold together gently to combine well. Don't over beat, but make sure it's mixed well. See Photo
- Add chilis and cheese and fold.
- Let rest about 15 minutes
- (Hopefully you've timed it so in this 15 minute, you can finish the dipping sauce, below! :)
- Fry in 355 oil for 3-5 minutes depending on the size you make them(see note). It's important to keep the oil temp at between 350-360 at all times.
- Drain well and serve with sauce.
For Dipping Sauce
- Combine all ingredients except whiskey in heavy sauce pan and simmer about 1 hour, stirring occasionally See Photo. breaking up pieces as it cooks, to distribute the flavors. See Photo
- Let cool about 10 minutes then transfer to blender or food processor.
- Add whiskey and puree until smooth.
- Taste and add more honey, if desired, the blend again.
- Sauce can be served warm, room temperature or cold.
- **Please note. I like to make fritters using my trigger ice cream scoop, but when they are that large, they are harder to get cooked through without browning too much on the outside. A cast iron pan and a thermometer really are best for this. So, if you're worried, just use a cookie size scoop or about 2T of batter a time...then you just have bite sized fritters! :)
