Tempura Battered Jalapeno Chips

So I recently had a burger at some chain and they served it with slices of deep fried jalapeno on top. The burger was so so, but the jalapenos were delicious! I decided to recreate them at home.

Yield:  20 crispy bites

3/4 cup (about 1/2 jar) nacho jalapeno slices (mild or hot, your choice!)
1/2 cup tempura (make according to package directions)
1 cup vegetable oil
salt, to taste

Southwestern Ranch Dressing (optional dipping sauce)
1 cup picante salsa
1 cup sour cream (greek yogurt will work too)
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tbsp lime juice
salt and pepper, to taste

This one is simple!  Heat oil in a large pot.  Dry jalapeno slices off and dip in tempura batter.  Fry in oil until brown and crisp.  Remove to paper towel lined plate to drain; sprinkle with salt.

To make dressing, simply combine all ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste.
