1You can roast the ear of corn over a gas burner ahead of time. If you don't have a gas stove to roast the corn on, you can grill it either outside or on a grill pan. The flavor isn't the same, but it's close.
2Heat oil to 365 degrees.
3Mix all dry ingredients and set aside.
4Cut the kernals off the ear of corn into a bowl. Add egg and scramble w/corn. Add buttermilk and chilies and mix together.
5Add dry ingredients to wet and mix completely careful to get rid of all lumps.
6Cut each hotdog into 4 pieces (you'll have 32 when done) and insert a toothpick into each.
7Dip each hotdog piece into batter and swirl around to completly coat. Drop into hot oil no more than 4 at a time. Turn as they float up for even cooking/color. Cook until golden.
