Chipolte Corn Fritters

Seasonal Recipe of the Week
Talk about your easy, cheap, yummy hors d'oeuvres!

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon chipolte powder (or 1 fresh jalapeno, diced)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon melted butter
12 ounces corn

In a medium bowl, mix flour, powder, salt, sugars, onion powder, chile, and garlic. In a separate bowl, combine egg, buttermilk and butter. Mix wet and dry together then add corn. Drop fritters batter by the spoonful into hot oil and fry till golden. Drain on paper towels. Dipping sauce optional, but I was thinking maybe a lime cilantro aioli, or a maple ancho butter?
