Cheesy Peach Jalapeno Hush Puppies for #SundaySupper Super Bowl Party

Happy Superbowl #SundaySupper! I am so excited for today's lineup hosted by one of my favorite food bloggers, Jen at Juantias Cocina. Nothing makes me happier than a good tailgate with amazing food. I had a very hard time deciding on one dish to make. After changing my mind 100 times, I decided to make Cheesy Jalapeno Peach Hush Puppies for Super Bowl. Since the Super Bowl is in NOLA and we are going there in 3 weeks, I felt I had to honor the city with some good southern food. I found this recipe on the Chobani Kitchen website and couldn't wait to make them!
This is a lightened up recipe, using peach flavored Greek Yogurt. After a little speculation and a few burns on my fingers, I could not have been happier with the result. I did not tell my boyfriend that I used Greek Yogurt in this recipe and he raved on and on about how good the hush puppies were. They are super easy to make and I had all of the ingredients in my kitchen, yay! These hush puppies would be amazing with your next fish fry or BBQ as well.

15 Minute Prep Time - 26 Servings - 190 Calories
Adapted from Chobani Kitchen
¾ c Chobani Peach Greek Yogurt
1½ c yellow cornmeal
¼ c all-purpose flour
1 Tbl sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda

¼ c water (I used a little more)
1 jalapeño, finely chopped
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese (I used 1/2 a block of sharp cheddar)
Vegetable oil for frying

Step 1 Mix cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
Step 2 In a large bowl combine Chobani and water, then add dry mixture, jalapeños and cheese and stir.
