For the Corn Fritters

  • 2 cups corn thawed and drained, if frozen
  • 1 jalapeno pepper minced
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 roasted red pepper finely chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle powder
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt plus more for serving
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2-3 Tablespoons vegetable oil for frying
  • lime wedges for serving

For the Chipotle Dip

  • ½ cup GO VEGGIE! vegan classic plain cream cheese
  • 1 chipotle pepper plus 1 teaspoon adobo
  • 1 lime juiced


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the corn, cilantro, scallion, red pepper, cilantro, chipotle powder and salt. Mix in the egg and flour until everything is combined and no dry flour remains.
  • Heat the oil in a deep skillet set over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Spoon two tablespoons of batter into the oil; press gently with a spatula to flatten slightly. Cook 1 minute on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • To prepare the dip, mix the cream cheese, chipotle and adobo, and lime juice in a medium bowl. Season to taste with salt.
  • Serve the corn fritters with chipotle dip and lime wedges.
