  • peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 1/4 cups fry mix, recipe follows
  • 1 cup beer
  • 1 (16 oz) jar pickled okra, drained
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup self-rising white cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus 3/4 teaspoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns, crushed
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons green onion, chopped, for garnish


Fry Mix:

Whisk together the flour, 1/2 teaspoon cornmeal, salt and pepper. Store in an airtight container in the pantry until needed.


Creamy Chipotle Sauce:

Blend the cream cheese, mayonnaise, chipotle, lime juice and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until needed. Garnish with green onions.


Heat the oil to 350°F in a deep skillet or fryer.


Combine the Fry Mix with the beer. Add the okra, coating it in the batter. Fry the okra, about 4 pieces at a time, turning the pieces frequently, until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer the okra to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Serve immediately with the Creamy Chipotle Sauce.
