Fried pickles are the perfect snack to me—they're crispy, salty and tangy. I like to dip these in my homemade chipotle ranch dressing. They're so good!

Special equipment:
a deep-fry thermometer
  1. Make the chipotle ranch: Whisk together the buttermilk, mayonnaise, dressing mix, lemon juice and chipotle chile powder until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Make the pickles: Pour the oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches in a Dutch oven. Heat to 375 degrees F.
  3. Drain the pickles and arrange in a single layer on a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Pat dry.
  4. Stir together the flour, House Seasoning and 1 cup water. Dip the pickles in the batter and let the excess drip off. Fry the pickles, in batches, until browned and crispy, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve the pickles with the chipotle ranch.
