3 fresh jalapeno chili peppers seeded and minced
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 red bell pepper seeded deribbed and finely diced
6 green onions white part and 2 inches of the tender green tops thinly sliced
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 1/2 cups milk

FOR THE TOMATO
1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 fresh jalapeno or serrano chili pepper seeded and minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
5 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
to taste salt and freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups sour cream

Cook corn kernels in lightly salted water for 1 minute. Drain, transfer to large bowl and cool. Add the chili peppers, garlic, bell pepper and green onions, mix well and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, flour, cornmeal, baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt and the lime juice. Add the milk and mix well to form a smooth batter.
Add to the corn mixture and stir to mix. Season to taste with more salt if needed, and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
To make the tomato salsa, stir together the tomatoes, red onion, chili pepper, lime juice, cilantro and salt and pepper to taste.
In a large frying over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons of the oil.
Working in batches, spoon the batter into the pan to form pancakes 3 inches in diameter; do not crowd the pan. Cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides.
Transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding oil as needed to prevent sticking.
Place the pancakes on a platter or individual plates and top with the sour cream and salsa.
