Sharing is caring!

A highly-seasoned chorizo with onions, fresh garlic, black beans, and corn is perfect for stuffing poblanos. The spice from the chorizo pairs well with the natural sweetness from the corn. You can top it with cheese if you like. Try serving at your next gathering, your family and friends will love it.


  • 2 pounds fresh okra, sliced in 1/8 inch pieces
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 6 packets instant grits
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup oil for frying, or as needed


Combine okra, tomato, and onion in a large bowl. Add the grits, eggs, salt, and pepper and blend together using your hands.

Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Form patties 2 1/2 inches in diameter, about 1/2 the size of a hamburger. Place the fritter in the pan and cook until golden brown, about five minutes. Flip with a spatula and cook until browned on the other side, about five minutes more. Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.
