Hush Puppies

1 cup self-rising flour, unsifted
1 cup plain cornmeal
1 onion, chopped
2-3 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
dash of Tabasco sauce
Milk (see instructions)
Oil for frying

Mix all ingredients (except milk and oil) together. Add milk a little at a time, until the batter is a consistency that will easily drop from a teaspoon into hot oil. Fry until golden brown. Scoop out the hush puppies and drain on a paper towel.

These are traditionally served with fried fish, but they go well with just about any meal that goes well with cornbread or biscuits.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
