Expert Tips

If you’re not up for spicy, check this. Skip the chilies and salsa, and serve the fritters with butter and maple syrup. Yum!

Use a thermometer to make sure the oil temperature is 375ºF. If no thermometer is available, test the oil using a small cube of bread. As soon as you think the oil is hot enough, drop in the bread cube and count slowly to sixty. If the cube browns by this time, the oil is ready.

Keep fritters crispy by placing them in an uncovered pan in a 300°F oven.
