Jalapeno Bottle Caps with Ranch

Fried pickles and jalapenos elbowed their way into the scene to offer another option to accompany your favorite burger or dog. I took a group of colleagues to the Katy Trail Ice House while they were in town for a meeting. I ordered a bunch of appetizers and the jalapeno’s were a hit. Surprising that many of them have never had them before. I guess they don’t realize that in the south fried- anything is possible.

The other night Jill wanted a cheeseburger so i figured I would try making these to surprise her. Super easy all you need is a batter, jar of pickled jalapenos and some oil. You get the tang of the pickling, heat from the jalapeno and complemented with the creamy ranch dressing. If you don’t appreciate the heat you can substitute the jalapenos with pickles.

Ingredients:
Fry Seasoning https://whiskeynwry.com/?s=Fry+Seasoning
1 cup of Self Rising flour
1 cup of beer
1 jar of pickled jalapenos
Oil for frying
Buttermilk Ranch Dressing (packet made with buttermilk)

Directions:
1. Heat your vegetable oil up to medium to medium high heat.

2. Drain your pickled jalapenos and pat them dry with a paper towel.

3. For the beer batter I poured the flour into a bowl and seasoned it with my fry seasoning. Slowly mix in the beer until it has the consistency is between queso and pudding. I poured all my jalapenos into the dredge and dropped them into the oil by hand (one at a time). Use your spider to move them around and turn them over. When done remove and place them on a paper towel and/or wire rack.
