For Corn Cakes

  • 3 cups frozen corn kernels or fresh corn cut off the cob
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 Tablespoon butter melted and cooled
  • 1 cup flour + 2 Tablespoons
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 4 ounce can diced green chilies, drained
  • ¼ cup green onions chopped
  • vegetable oil for frying

Peach Sauce

  • 1 cup peach jam
  • 2 Tablespoons Adobo Chilies sauce only

Topping (Optional)

  • ½ cup sour cream


  • Mix two cups of corn, eggs and buttermilk together in a blender and puree.
  • Place dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, salt, pepper, baking soda) in a separate mixing bowl and gently stir to combine. Pour one cup of corn and corn mixture into dry ingredients and stir just until flour disappears.
  • Add cheese, green chilies and green onions. Stir just to evenly distribute throughout batter.
  • Heat ¼ cup vegetable oil in large skillet to about 350 degrees. Scoop approximately 3-4 Tablespoon mounds of corn batter onto hot oiled pan. Press down and let corn fritters fry until golden brown, then flip over to other side and cook until golden brown.
  • Remove fritters and leave to drain on paper towel. Add more oil to pan as needed. Continue frying corn fritters until all the batter is gone.
  • Serve immediately with smoked chili peach sauce. They are best when served warm.

Smoked Chili Peach Sauce

  • Mix together peach jam and Adobo Chile sauce. Heat to combine. Serve warm or cold.
