Rio Grande Fritter Cakes
Combine dry mix with egg, 2 tablespoons oil and milk to make batter then stir in the chile peppers, corn and Cheddar. Heat a thin layer of vegetable oil in a large skillet and cook 6 small cakes, 3 inches each, at a time for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side and 1 to 2 minutes on the second side, until evenly deep golden in color. Transfer to a towel lined plate and salt the fritter cakes. Repeat, adding and heating a little additional oil for the second batch.
