It’s getting much warmer here in South Africa and so, there are braais every weekend. You need the perfect side to go with it. We love bringing our own sides to a braai at a friend or family member’s house and these Chili Corn Cakes will likely become the star of the show. What’s better than some corn, bacon and chili, right? If you’ve made corn or pumpkin fritters, this recipe will be especially easy to make.

There aren’t many processes in this great recipe and the only one that needs actual attention are the chilies. To seed your chilies, slice them in half along the length and use the same knife to scrape the seeds out, it’s that easy. If you have them on your own and love spice, you’re welcome to keep the seeds in. Then, it’s only about mixing and frying the Chili Corn Cakes until golden brown on each side, which only takes about five minutes.
