These are addictively delicious. Spicy and sinful. Best if served with melted nacho cheese sauce.

Addictively delicious describes these perfectly!! I did change one thing in the recipe I used 1/2 cup yellow corn meal & 1/2 cup flour in place of 1 cup flour. They don't last long so be sure to cook plenty!! We used ranch dressing for dipping. Read More

These tasted good but they never got crispy. I'll probably try again though because the batter was yummy. Read More

These were great after a few adjustments. Found the oil temp too high and they were being over cooked. Also the batter was too thin ---would cut down on the beer to 1/2 cup next time. Excellent way for using the over abundance of Jalapenos we grow in the garden Read More

I love these but I use Pickled peppers already sliced. If serving a large crowd you can buy them in a large can. Just make sure to drain them well. Read More

These snacks were great. Everyone loved them we served them with jalapeno cheese & Ranch dressing they were gone in minutes. One suggestion I would recommend; coat them in flour first prior to the beer mixture. For a thicker breading repeat process twice Read More

These were good and will make again with a few changes. I will use more of a fried chicken breading recipe as this recipe was more like an 'elephant ear' dough. And I used jarred Jalapeno's for more bite. Also I halved the recipe and still had plenty left over. I was excited about these because I used to love them at TGI Fridays when they called them "Fire Bites". Hopefully with the adjustments I can resemble them more. Read More
