Spicy Fried Pickles

Fried pickles are one of my guilty pleasures. If I am out to eat and they are on the menu I will always get them unless I see something better, but I doubt it. I know they are not the best for you only because they are fried, but whatever. This recipe takes regular fried pickles to another level. I really love spicy foods and theres something about the spice with the tartness of the pickles that is delicious. I also recommend pairing this with a jalpeno ranch or any other spicy dipping sauce. This is a good snack for game days or even a small get together. Enjoy!
