Chili-Fried Onion Rings
Onion rings are an addictive snack. But they don't have to be reserved for special occasions or restaurant excursions. Ours are crispy, hot, spicy, and easy enough to be enjoyed whenever.
Why This Recipe Works
After trying a dozen different batters for our Chili-Fried Onion Rings, we found we preferred a buttermilk and flour batter lightened with cornstarch. It fried up crisp, light, and delicate. For the cleanest flavor, we fried the rings in either peanut or vegetable oil. It was important to keep the heat high. If the oil temperature dips too low, the onions’ batter will absorb the oil and the rings will be greasy.
