  • 6 Hatch peppers, cut into thin strips, seeds and stem removed
  • 3/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 Tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 Tsp. salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1/2 Cup whole milk
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, paprika, onion powder, and salt. Add black pepper to taste.
  2. In a second bowl, whisk together milk and egg.
  3. Dip each Hatch Pepper strip into egg wash, then into flour mixture.
  4. In a large skillet, heat about 1" vegetable oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, fry about half of the strips until they're golden (about 2 minutes). Remove strips from oil and rest on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining strips.
  5. Serve with ranch dipping sauce.
