Dirty Dill Pickle Poppers

  • Dirty Dill Pickle Poppers

Crispy, spicy, cheesy. These Dirty Dill Pickle Poppers have it all.

Ingredients:

For the chipotle dipping sauce:

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • ½ tsp kosher salt

Directions: 

  1. Using an apple corer, remove the centers of the Dirty Dill Baby Dills. To do this, stand the pickle straight up, twist the corer to break the pickle skin, and then push it down until you reach the opposite end of the pickle. Twist and pull towards you to remove the inside of the pickle.
  2. Spoon the pimento cheese into the cored pickle, pressing it in until the pickle is full. You will want to hold your thumb against the opposite end of the pickle to make sure that the filling doesn’t squeeze out as you’re pushing more in.
  3. Once the pickles are filled with cheese, get out your egg roll wrappers. Take one pickle and lay it in the center of an egg roll wrapper. You want the egg roll wrapper to be angled so that it looks like a diamond, with the pickle going down the center.
  4. Fold over one side of the egg roll wrapper to cover the pickle. Then, fold up the bottom end and fold down the top end. Dip a finger in water and run it over the unfolded side of the wrapper. Then, roll it up tightly. You should have a traditional egg roll shape now! Repeat with the remaining pickles.
  5. In a heavy-bottomed skillet, fill about 1/2″ high with oil and heat over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add in the pickles. Pan fry until golden brown all around, turning to cook evenly.
