8 tablespoons beer
3 jalapeno peppers (about 3 1/2 ounces), trimmed, seeded, and sliced crosswise 1/4-inch thick
Blue Cheese Dip, recipe follows
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

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.
