Tips for Mexican Street Corn Fritters:

  • Cook on Stove Top – These Street Corn Fritters can easily be cooked on skillet over medium heat.
  • Heat Griddle – Make sure to heat griddle and oil to cook the corn fritters. This allows the fritters to cook with a crispy texture and prevents them from sticking.
  • Resting Fritters – Once you have cook the fritters, remove them from the griddle and place on a paper towel lined baking sheet. You can also place on a wire rack to keep them extra crispy.
  • Dipping Sauce – We recommend making the dipping sauce to serve with the corn fritters. We even serve it on top for added flavor.
  • Filling Measuring Cup – Fill the measuring cup with the corn fritters batter and level off the top. This allows for evenly corn fritters to cook on the griddle.
  • Press Fritters – When the fritter batter is poured onto the hot griddle, gently press with a spatula.

Variations:

  • Corn – Feel free to use frozen corn, corn on the cob or canned corn to make these fritters.
  • Cotija Cheese – If you are unable to find cotija cheese you can substitute for queso fresco. Parmesan Cheese is also a great substitute.
  • Seasoning – Feel free to change the seasoning. A great substitute would be taco seasoning.
  • Dipping Sauce – If you need a substitute for mayonnaise, you can use sour cream. You can also use half sour cream and half mayonnaise.
