For the fritter:

  • 1/4 cup gluten-free flour blend
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup green onion (diced)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups cooked corn (cut off the cob, canned, or frozen and thawed all work)
  • 2 LA MORENA® Whole Jalapeños (remove seeds if you wish, small dice)
  • 1 tbsp oil (avocado oil, canola oil, olive oil, etc.)

For the Avocado Crema

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 LA MORENA® Whole Jalapeño (remove seeds if you wish, stem removed)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • In a large bowl whisk together cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, cumin and green onion. Add the garlic, almond milk, and lime juice and stir until a paste forms. Add the corn and LA MORENA® Whole Jalapeños and stir until combined.
  • Preheat a skillet over medium heat and add oil to the pan.
  • Using a spoon or ice cream scoop (my preference), scoop about 2 tablespoons of mixture into the pan. Gently press down with your hands or a spatula to flatten. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until they are a light golden brown.
  • To make the avocado crema, combine avocado, lime juice, LA MORENA® Whole Jalapeños, salt and almond milk in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Add additional almond milk to thin out the crema if you wish.
  • Spoon avocado crema over the fritters and top with additional green onion. Serve immediately.
