Jalapeno Bites

I LOVE watching cooking shows. 
Every weekend when I wake up its my ritual to turn on the old boob tube & catch up on some of my favorite cooking shows.
This morning I watched Paula Deen's cooking show.
She was making "Jalapeno Bottle Caps" with a Blue Cheese dip, that is very similar to my home made blue cheese dip.
They are a lot like making fried pickles too.

Here is what you will need:


  • Peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 cup Fry Mix, recipe follows
  • 8 tablespoons beer
  • 3 jalapeno peppers (about 3 1/2 ounces), trimmed, seeded, and sliced crosswise 1/4-inch thick
  • Pinch salt
  • Blue Cheese Dip, recipe follows


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. 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.

Fry Mix:

  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup self-rising white cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper

Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix.

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
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions, white and light green parts

Combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. Fold in the blue cheese and green onions. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Here is where I found this recipe! FANTASTIC!
