These colorful mini corn fritters made with avocado, cilantro and a touch of lemon are not only pleasing to the palate but they are also very pretty to look at. They are soft and fluffy like hotcakes but with a lot more flavor. To prepare them, I used fresh seasonal corn. Serve them with a little pico de gallo or sour cream for a light lunch. Or you can serve them with a nice bowl of soup or chili at dinnertime. MORE + LESS -
