Southwestern Onion Rings

"From Taste of Home magazine, these onion rings were delicious served with grilled hamburgers. They had just the right amount of spices to suit my family's tastes. Of course, you can add in additional spices if you would like them with more heat. The prep time includes the time to soak the onion rings."

    We loved these and will make them again and again. They are so flavorful and just right with TexMex style burgers. Thanks for posting.

    These were some of the best onion rings I have ever had. I really enjoyed the spiciness of these onion rings. I normally dip my onion rings in ketchup, but these didn't need to be dipped in anything. I will be using this recipe often in the future. Made for ZWT5. :yummy: Update: This recipe is in my Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook.

    These turned out fantastic! I even fried a little yellow squash using this batter. This would be really good with a spicy cajun romoulade sauce. Definite keeper. Made for ZWT5.

    These were tasty, but they are best eaten as soon as they're out of the oil. I did reduce the recipe, as there are only 2 of us. I will make these again, and try to hold in a warm oven. Thanks Dreamgoddess for a spicy variation on onion rings. Made for ZWT 5.
