Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat until it reaches 375° on a deep-fry thermometer. Reduce heat to low if it gets too hot.

  • Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise and chipotle in a small bowl; set aside. Mix 1/2 cup flour, the cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Put remaining 1/2 cup flour in a second bowl and buttermilk in a third bowl.

  • Working with about 10 beans at a time, dust beans with flour, dip in buttermilk, then dredge in cornmeal mixture, breaking clumps apart as needed.

  • Carefully drop beans into hot oil, turning to keep them from sticking. Fry beans until golden brown, about 3 minutes, increasing or reducing heat as needed to keep oil at 350°. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beans to a tray lined with paper towels. Serve with spicy mayo on the side.
