Deep fried appetizers are my absolute favorite. Everything tastes better fried. Among my favorite fried foods,………..these Deep Fried Jalapeno Slices.

They have a wonderful batter that fries up both crispy and light. Frying jalapenos takes some bite out of them, but they still have plenty of heat. I like to douse them in Ranch dressing to cool them off a little.

You’ll need about 8 to 10 fresh jalapenos for this recipe. With the amount of batter this recipe makes, you can probably fry about 18 to 20. Which you’ll want to do if you are making these for game day. They will go in a hurry! Especially when you have some cold beer to serve them with.

These jalapenos are coated in a beer batter so they are perfect for game day and serving with beer. You can use Guinness or any light beer. I’d stay away from really hoppy IPAs. They might throw the flavor off.

I fry in vegetable oil, but you could use Canola oil or peanut oil. I find the heat level really varies from jalapeno to jalapeno.
