Ingredients
  • Peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 cup Fry Mix, recipe follows
  • 8 tablespoons beer
  • 3 jalapeno peppers (about 3 1/2 ounces), trimmed, seeded, and sliced crosswise 1/4-inch thick
  • Pinch salt
  • Blue Cheese Dip, recipe follows
  • Fry Mix:
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup self-rising white cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • Blue Cheese Dip:
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled blue cheese

Directions

Heat the oil in a deep skillet to 375 degrees F.

While the oil heats up, combine the fry mix with the beer, stirring until smooth. Toss the jalapeno slices in the batter. Using a slotted wooden spoon or tongs, carefully lower the jalapeno slices into the oil. Fry for about 2 minutes, turning them often to brown evenly. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and season with salt. Serve immediately with Blue Cheese Dip.

Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix.

Blue Cheese Dip:
