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

Blue Cheese Dip:

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 cup mayonnaise
