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

  • 1
    Strain the pickles.
  • 2
    Lay 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.)
  • 3
    Measure out 2 1/4 cups of the Corona and add that to the cup of flour. Mix well.
  • 4
    Add the garlic salt and chili powder into the batter.
  • 5
    Heat vegetable oil in a deep frying pan. I don't use a certain temperature, I just put it on high.
  • 6
    Using tongs, pull the pickle chips through the dredge and place in hot oil. Let cook until golden brown and flip.
  • 7
    Lay 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.
  • 8
    Serve with a side of ranch dressing!
