Jalapeno Coins

Sometimes you look in the mirror and you don't recognize yourself...

It seems I've been doing this a lot lately when it comes to my time in the kitchen.

I'm not really a beer drinker. I like some beers, but it's not my first choice of any type of beverage. I am hooked on beer foods though. [insert meme: BEER BATTER ALL THE THINGS!!!!] It's crazy. I also invested in a little deep fryer that also can be a steamer and a pot-shaped slow cooker - it's pretty awesome [see it on Amazon]. Once upon a time, I said I would never get one because I remember how messy they were from the Fry Daddy my family had when I was a kid. But so far, it's amazingly easy to clean and take care of. I kept the container that the oil came from and use a measuring cup to pour it back into that container. It's surprisingly easy to keep everything clean and not greasy all over.

These beer battered jalapeno slices are so addictive. I couldn't make them fast enough!

Jalapeno Coins | Beer battered and fried - you can't go wrong with this spicy treat! #recipe

What you need:
  • 1 cup flour, plus some
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup beer
  • Pickled jalapeno slices
  1. In a bowl, mix together the eggs and spices. Then add the beer and stir.
  2. Add flour slowly while stirring until combined and smooth.
  3. Pour about 1/2 cup of flour in another bowl.
  4. Place some jalapenos into the flour, coating all sides.
  5. Then dip them in the beer batter until coated on all sides.
  6. In a preheated deep fryer (mine was between 350 and 400), drop your basket into the oil before putting some of the battered jalapenos in. Fry until golden brown and remove to a paper towel lined plate. You may need to flip them so both sides get golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
