Green Chile Cheddar Corn Dog Bites

Green Chile Cheddar Corn Dog Bites


1 pack jumbo all beef hotdogs, cut into thirds 

¾ c yellow cornmeal 

 ½ c all purpose flour 

¼ c sugar 

1 tsp baking powder 

Pinch of salt 

1 egg 

½ c whole milk 

½ c shredded cheddar cheese 

1 quart vegetable oil 

Yellow mustard 

1 fresh Jalapeno 

 Toothpicks or small wooden skewers


Add vegetable oil to a heavy-bottom pot over medium high heat and bring oil to 350 degrees. While oil heats:

  • Cut hotdogs into thirds and pat dry. 
  • In a medium bowl combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. 
  • In another bowl combine eggs, milk, chilis, and cheese. 
  • Add the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients and stir until well mixed. 

In small batches, dip each corn dog bite into the batter. Using a toothpick, move the corndog to the hot oil gently, slide the battered hotdog off of the toothpick and cook until golden brown.  About 30 seconds to 1 minute per side. 

Remove corn dog bites to a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle with salt. Serve with yellow mustard for dipping and fresh jalapenos as garnish.
