Puerto Rican Corn Sticks

Puerto Rican Corn Sticks – also known as Sorullitos De Maiz are the most amazingly delicious corn fritters oozing with cheese. You will find that some people refer to these corn fritters as ‘sorullos’ as well, but either term can be used.

You’ll find recipes with and without the inclusion of sugar in the batter, meaning that these fabulous fritters can be served for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even as an appetizer!

Dipping sauces for Puerto Rican Corn Sticks

Traditional dipping sauces consist of a mayonnaise-ketchup mix, but if you’re having these for breakfast, you may want to use maple syrup to make them even sweeter! 

Or why not try this dipping sauce, that we think compliments this perfectly?

Slightly tangy and sweet, guava and pineapple combined help create an explosion of flavor, taking these lovely little corn fritters from delicious to simply irresistible.

Our top tip for the BEST Sorullitos De Maiz 

Many recipes for Puerto Rican Corn Sticks use water in the batter. But if you’d like your batter to be richer and to have a fuller flavor, we recommend using coconut milk or milk instead! If you are leaning towards serving your Sorullitos as a sweet dish, the milk or coconut milk tends to be the better option.

How to freeze Puerto Rican Corn Sticks

While Sorullitos De Maiz are best eaten right after they’ve been cooked, they do freeze well if you wanted to prepare a large batch to cook some later. 

Once you’ve made the dough and rolled them out into the little logs, just place them on parchment paper, ensuring that they do not touch each other. Put them into the freezer, laying flat.

Once frozen through, transfer them to a freezer bag. When you are ready to cook them, remove the desired quantity from the freezer, drop into hot oil and cook as you would normally.
