1 Pierce a wooden skewer or chopstick through the center of a pickle.

2 Carefully slice the pickle at an angle while rotating the skewered pickle to create the spiral cuts.

3 Spread out the spiralized pickle on the skewer.

4 Coat the pickle in flour. Shake of excess.

5 Coat the pickle in the whisked egg. Shake of excess.

6 Coat the pickle in the crushed corn chips. Use your hands to press the chips into the pickle to ensure it sticks and to get the chips in the cut sides of the pickle.

7 In a pan over medium, heat 1 inch oil. Drop a few pieces of crushed chip in the oil to test the heat, if the chips sizzle the oil is hot enough. Working in batches fry pickles until golden brown, about 2 minutes per pickle. Drain on a paper towel–lined plate.
