Jalapeno Cheddar Mini Corndogs

Anthony Nicometi Jr


My aunt and I were on a cooking frenzy for New Years. I came up with this Idea for 3 reasons.
A.) I love corndogs!
B.) I love cheddar & jalapeno!
C.) I haven't seen too many mini corndogs done before!
So I took it upon myself to make them, They are so delicious and so simple to do. Everyone seemed to enjoy and I know all of you will too! :)

How to Make Jalapeno Cheddar Mini Corndogs


  1. Prepare cornbread batter: Mix Jiffy mix, milk and the egg until combined. Gently fold in the finely diced jalapeno. Add granulated garlic, cayenne and chili powder, and stir once more. Then set aside
  2. Take your Johnsonville Lil Smokies, and place them into a colander and gently rinse.
    (If you skip this step, the oil on the outside will prevent the batter from sticking completely.)
  3. Pat dry with a paper towel and start dipping corndogs to coat.
  4. Place in 375 degree oil until golden brown. Salt IMMEDIATELY after taking out of oil.
  5. Enjoy with ketchup and mustard :)
