Fried Pickles with Cayenne Ranch Dip

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 11 ounce jar hamburger dill pickle slices
2 cups buttermilk

Preheat vegetable oil to 350 degrees in a large pot or use fry daddy.

Drain dill pickles in a colander then place into a bowl with the 2 cups of buttermilk.

Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well.

Take about a handful of the pickles out of the buttermilk and dredge into the seasoned flour.  (I usually take one at a time to do if I want them covered in a thicker shell)

Shake off excess flour, and place battered pickles into hot grease. Be careful not to place too many pickles into the hot grease or the pickles won't fry up crisp.

Fry pickle slices until golden brown. Continue cooking pickles until all are done.

Ranch Dip (either the bottle or prepared packet mix, whichever you like best)
Cayenne Pepper Seasoning

Pour amount of Ranch that you want into a bowl & add Cayenne until it has the kick you desire.
