Different but delicious, both my husband and daughter enjoyed them. Had picante sauce and homemade guacamole for dips.

Di, The guys loved this great recipe! I used some fresh oregano thyme and used a hearty microbrewery beer (Shipyard) in the batter. Really flavorful. A keeper for sure! Thanks for posting. Barb

Light and airy, yet filling. The beer makes the difference in the batter
