These quick and easy fritters have summertime written all over 'em! This recipe is a great way to use up some of the veggies from your garden. And, the Mexican cornbread adds to the great flavor. The chili lemon seasoning in the sour cream is the perfect topping for these fritters! The Test Kitchen
