  • 1 jar pickle slices
  • 1 egg
  • 12 oz beer
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 jalapenos seeded
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • Oil for frying


  1. In a food processor, pulse the jalapeno until liquefied. Add the egg and pulse to combine.
  2. In bowl, combine egg mixture, beer, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Stir in flour.
  4. Drain pickles and soak up any excess moisture on paper towels.
  5. In a deep stockpot, add 1-2 inches of oil and heat over medium-high heat.
  6. Dip pickle slices in batter letting excess drain off. Working in batches, place battered pickles in hot oil for about 3 minutes per side. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.

Recipe Notes

As you continue to cook batches, they may cook faster than 3 minutes because the oil is getting hotter. Reduce the cooking time or lower the heat a little bit.
