"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

3/4 cup yellow corn meal
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon red pepper (cayenne)
1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
4 oz chopped green chilies, drained
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
vegetable oil for frying

Combine all ingredients except the egg and milk in a bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Stir the egg and milk together well.

Add this mixture into the well; stir until a batter forms.
In a Dutch oven, pour the oil to a depth of 3 inches, or in a deep fryer, heat the oil to 375.

Carefully drop the batter by rounded tablespoons into the hot oil, being careful not to splash. Fry a few at a time 3-4 minutes or until golden brown; turning once.

Drain them on paper towels. Serve immediately.
