Ingredients

  • Peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 1/4 cups Fry Mix, recipe follows
  • 1 cup beer
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar pickled okra, drained
  • Creamy Chipotle Sauce, recipe follows
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup self-rising white cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed black peppercorns
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onion, for garnish

Method

Step 1

Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep skillet or fryer.

Step 2

Combine the Fry Mix with the beer. Add the okra, coating it in the batter. Fry the okra, about 4 pieces at a time, turning the pieces frequently, until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer the okra to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Serve immediately with the Creamy Chipotle Sauce.

Step 3

Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper. Store in an airtight container in the pantry until needed.

Step 4

Blend the cream cheese, mayonnaise, chipotle, lime juice, and salt in a food processor until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until needed. Garnish with green onions.
