These Easy Mexican Corn Fritters are a fast and simple solution for a delicious side dish or an appetizer. The sweetness from the corn and the smokiness of the paprika offer a nice balance of flavors that will be a hit among the entire family or group of friends. Serve alongside your favorite grilled meat, or make them a little smaller to serve before the main course. They could pair well with our Eva Longoria Inspired Tacos de Lengua, Eva Longoria Inspired Huachinango a la Veracruzana, Sangria, Mojito, or Horchata.
