  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sliced jalapeño peppers
  • Nacho cheese sauce


  1. Mix flour, salt, pepper, red chili powder, garlic powder, eggs, and beer together in a bowl.
  2. In a deep fryer, or large pot heat oil to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  3. Dip the sliced jalapeños into the batter. Place battered jalapeños in deep fryer.
  4. The jalapeños are fully cooked when they float to the surface of the oil.
