Ingredients

  • 1 (8.5 ounce) package cornbread mix
  • 1 Anaheim pepper, roasted, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 serrano pepper, roasted, seeded, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup grilled or roasted fresh corn kernels
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup pilsner-style beer, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup grated pepper jack cheese
  • 1 quart corn oil, for frying
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Agave Butter, recipe follows
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup agave syrup

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, add the cornbread mix, peppers, corn kernels, the egg, beer and cheese. Stir with a fork to just combine and let sit for 7 minutes.

Step 3

Heat the oil, (3 to 4 inches deep), in a heavy pan or Dutch oven to 365 degrees F.

Step 4

Using 2 large soupspoons, drop the mixture, in batches into the hot oil and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully turn and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Remove to a wire rack lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt when still hot. Put the baking sheet in a warm oven, if not serving right away, or serve immediately with Spicy Agave Butter.

Step 5

In a small bowl, add the butter and mix with a fork until light and fluffy. Stir in the spices and the agave syrup. Stir well to combine and refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes.
