BIG TIP: Before you add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, add your pepper slices to the seasoned flour first! Shake them around to get them well coated. Remove the pepper slices from the flour, then add your wet ingredients to the flour mixture. This makes the batter stick to the peppers. We use a spicy ranch dressing to dip our's in. Delish!
Wow... these little peppers were awesome! I followed the directions exactly, except that I dipped the pepper slices in flour first before dipping them in the batter. The extra flour seemed to help the batter stick to the pepper during frying. I used large jalapenos and they were hot, but we still ate them plain, right off the plate. However, these peppers would have been good dipped in ranch dressing or topped with melted cheddar cheese. Thanks Riff for a great recipe! I know we will be making these again!
These are fantastic. Although I've been eating jalapenos for as long as I can remember, I 'd never had them sliced and fried for some reason. That has changed permanently, as I imagine these will become part of my snaking routine. The batter is very tasty and light and gives the peppers a great flavor. I ate them right out of the pan without any dip. We did have to thicken it a bit with a little more flour, but the chili powder and garlic powder really work well together. Thanks for posting this riff...
Yipee! These babies are something else! I got some jumbo jalapeños so that the slices would be easier to work with. I used New Mexico Chimayo chile powder which has a wonderful sweetness (I think) to it. This recipe would be easy for one person to make, but it was so much fun to have DH help me make them. This recipe will have permanant place at cookouts. Thanks, riffraff for sharing this great recipe.
This was a really good recipe. Having leftover batter I grated potatoes, onions and some jalepeno's in it and used it as a tempura batter. Very nice with Ranch Dressing!
i dont know what i did wrong but i could not get the batter to stick to the outside of the jalepeno slices...i ended up having to pack about a half a tsp to the cut sides & made little mini "jalepeno burgers"...they tasted great!
Delish!! I used a Michelob Amberboch for the beer and also used jumbo slices of jalapenos. These are great dipped in ranch dressing.
Wow, these are great! I made a half batch using large slices of jalapeno, yummy, yummy, spicy, spicy! I did sub water for the beer :)
I made these for my boyfriend, and he really liked them! I will definitely be making them again. Great recipe!
Your very right Pedro, I have had these over a few beers too. Better then salted nuts... Perfect combination of heat and base combined with the beer is a sensation for the mouth!
