Corn Fritters All Year Long!

Corn is quintessential to summer. We are lucky because there are so many great frozen corn kernels on the market, so it is easy to enjoy this recipe all year long. Having said that I like to make these fritters during the summer and freeze them for later. I added the spinach to add some nutrients and a pop of color.

I like to serve this with sour cream that I’ve stirred some hot sauce into, but chipotle ranch dressing is great too. Finally I sprinkle beautifully sliced green onions over the top, but chopped cilantro adds another layer of flavor.
