Prepare Corn: Add the corn to a large bowl. If using fresh corn, cut all the kernels off the cob. If using canned or frozen check notes at bottom of recipe.
Add in the diced green cilantro, green onion, diced jalapeno, and squeeze in the lime juice from 1/2 a lime.
Mix Dry Ingredients: In a small bowl add the flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, chili powder and stir to combine.
Combine: Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the corn. Stir to mix together.
Mix Batter: Pour in the beaten eggs, milk, and cheese. Stir to combine. Will be a thick batter.
Heat Oil: Heat a pan over medium high heat, add a drizzle of olive oil, we just need to coat the bottom of the pan.
Fry Fritters: Place a scoop of the corn fritter batter, about a 1/4 cup amount into the hot oil. Press the batter down to compact it, and press the sides in to help create a patty shape using a rubber spatula.
Let the batter cook in the oil for about 2-3 minutes, you will see the edges starting to turn golden. Then carefully flip using a spatula to cook the other side. Once both sides are golden brown then remove from the pan and set on a tray lined with a paper towel to absorb any extra oil.
At this point you can sprinkle with any extra salt or pepper you may want. Serve warm.
