  • peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 cup fry mix, recipe follows
  • 8 tablespoons beer
  • 3 (3 1/2 oz) jalapeno peppers, trimmed, seeded, and sliced crosswise 1/4-inch thick
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup self-rising white cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz) blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions, white and light green parts


Heat the oil in a deep skillet to 375º.


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:

Very good but I

Very good but I like mine with smoked sausage, but it's hard to keep lit.

I would rate it

I would rate it higher if the ingredients for the fry mix was actually there.
