Kicked Up Hush Puppies

Cassie *


I usually only make these when having Seafood, but my son loves them and asks for them just as a, he got his way today...he dips them in Ranch dressing...they have quite the kick to them, as my jalapeno's are quite can make them without too - delicious either way!
