Healthy Corn Fritters

One of my favorite veggies is corn.  It’s so sweet and delicious. One of the best things about having a passion for cooking, is being able to try something new.  I have never had a corn fritter in my life.  So when I saw this recipe I knew I had to give it a try.  Plus, since the hubby is out of town, its great to try a recipe that I know he wouldn’t try.

I only added 1/4 of a fairly large jalapeno and my mouth is a blaze.  But oh so delicious with a dollop of Plan Chobani.  The coolness of the Greek yogurt marry well with these mouth-watering spicy fritters.  I am sure sour cream would work too.
