I'm not a fan of hush puppies. At any rate, I did have a jalapeno stuffed with cream cheese and served with raspberry jam once. It was breaded and fried. it was good, but not something I would go out of my way to procure, much less cook myself. I hate frying things. I wonder if a Chile Relleno qualifies as a croquette? If so I have eaten hundreds!
If hushpuppies are done right, they are amazing. I have had some that resembled fishing weights. Dense, heavy, and just no bueno. I made some a couple of months back that were light, airy and delicious. But, they do not qualify as croquettes since they are just fried cornbread.
No idea if chile relleno qualifies, can you bread it and fry it?
I made some baked jalapenos that were filled with cheese mixture and shrimp, then wrapped in partially cooked bacon (less greasy that way but still pliable to wrap the jalapenos). They were quite delicious. But, I would have to bread them and fry them for them to qualify as a croquette. Maybe I could chop well-cooked bacon up and mix it inside with the shrimp and cheese, then bread the jalepeno? That might just work.
