Holiday Side Dishes: Make Chili Hush Puppies in Redlands

Are you looking for a side dish to make your guest’s mouth water during Thanksgiving dinner? Well then we have the perfect recipe for you. Here is a simple, yet tasty chili hush puppies recipe to try.

Ingredients

4 cups of canola oil
1 cup of cornbread batter
3/4 cup of chili
1 tablespoon diced parsley leaves
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

 

Spicy Sour Cream Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup of sour cream
2 teaspoons of diced chives
1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon of Tabasco sauce

 

Directions:

Start by heating your oil with medium heat until it reaches 360 degrees. Next grab a large mixing bowl and add in the cornbread batter, chili, parsley, and baking powder–mixed until the substance is thoroughly combined.

 

Next drop a few large tablespoons of batter into the hot oil and fry until golden brown (which turns into 4 or 5 minutes stretches). Do not overcrowd the pan and only make four or five at a time.

 

Place the finished puppies on  a paper towel so excess oil can be released. Next make the spicy sour cream dipping sauce by combining all the ingredients and whisking until everything is mixed.
