Mexican Fried Pickles

Ashley Dawkins


Sometimes I will make them hotter by adding a couple dashes of tabasco sauce.
I have to make them mild usually for guests, so I will make them in two batches!!

And the extra Corona...I always drink it!!

How to Make Mexican Fried Pickles


  • 1Strain the pickles.
  • 2Lay out the strained pickles on paper towels to get out any excess juices. Pat the tops of the pickles to help with the process. (Save these paper towels.)
  • 3Measure out 2 1/4 cups of the Corona and add that to the cup of flour. Mix well.
  • 4Add the garlic salt and chili powder into the batter.
  • 5Heat vegetable oil in a deep frying pan. I don't use a certain temperature, I just put it on high.
  • 6Using tongs, pull the pickle chips through the dredge and place in hot oil. Let cook until golden brown and flip.
  • 7Lay out the cooked pickles on a paper towel lined plate. *This is where I use the paper towels from earlier. I place the pickles back on them when done cooking so that the oils will pick up some of the left over pickle flavor.
  • 8Serve with a side of ranch dressing!
