    Years ago these were popular in Ohio, a great bell pepper State! Even before Onion Rings, then someone made Onion rings and you never saw green pepper rings again! They are so delicious I can't believe there is not a food service provider that doesn't sell these to restaurants. Great to dip in ranch sauce but I can think of some tasty newer things for dipping. Balsamic, teriyaki and olive oil would be delicious too!

    The Jalapenos end up having the same consistency as the bell peppers!! Delicious outcome.. i used a Chipotle Batter instead of Beer even though the Beer batter has a fluffy crustiness to it, the Chipotle brings the MAD flavor.
    here is the tasty Chipotle recipe

    I think there are a lot of things that are considered healthy by themselves processed into stuff we all enjoy each day and it is not a CRIME! For crying out loud, this is such a cool instructable and I can't wait to try it out. Thanks for developing it and sharing it. It got my vote.

    The bell pepper "becomes" sweet and soft? Soft maybe, but the last time I checked, orange bell peppers start out sweet, and they're a hell of a lot better for you fresh. Way to kill a perfectly good nutritious vegetable with old fashioned cooking.
