Southwest Corn & Jalepno Fritters from Lemony Thyme

College Football Season is upon us.  In fact, for our team it’s GAME DAY!! Since we’re a foodie family, Game Day is one more reason to create new dishes.  Our inspiration comes from our opponents.  Yes, we like to envision our rivals as a meal.  For example if we’re playing the Arkansas Razorbacks….we might have a meal of Braised Pork.  I’ve been warned that talking College Football is akin to discussing religion and politics.  So instead we’ll focus on these Southwest Skillet Corn Fritters {with Avocado Ranch Dip}.  We devoured them.

I’ll leave you with these pictures and a recipe.  I’ve got a game to watch ;)
