Mini Mexican Street Corn Dogs

Prep: 35 minutes
Cook: 6 minutes • Serves: 8

8 cups vegetable oil
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons honey cornbread mix
2 teaspoons chipotle-garlic seasoning
4 (6-inch) hot dogs, cut crosswise in half
8 (6-inch) wooden skewers
1 large egg
1 cup buttermilk
2 medium jalapeño peppers, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chipotle mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons grated cotija cheese
Lime slices for garnish (optional)

1.Attach deep fryer thermometer to side of medium saucepan; add oil and heat over medium heat 35 minutes or until oil temperature reaches 350˚.

2.In medium bowl, stir together cornbread mix and 1 teaspoon chipotle-garlic seasoning. Pat hot dogs dry with paper towel; insert skewers halfway into cut end of each hot dog and roll in cornbread mixture to lightly coat.

3.In small bowl, whisk egg and buttermilk; stir into cornbread mixture. In 2 batches, dip each hot dog into batter, allowing excess to drip off; slowly add to hot oil and fry 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain corn dogs on paper towel-lined rimmed baking pan.

4.Serve corn dogs topped with jalapeño, mayonnaise, cilantro, cheese and remaining chipotle-garlic seasoning; garnish with lime slices, if desired.

Chef Tip:
Transfer batter to a tall drinking glass for easier hot dog dipping. Heat oil back to 350° before frying the second batch of corn dogs.
