Betty demonstrates how to make Onion Rings of Fire. The fire of these onion rings comes from having serrano peppers, cayenne pepper, and Tabasco in the batter.


Vidalia onions 2 Large
All purpose flour 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Serrano chili peppers 2
Salt 2 Teaspoon
Cayenne pepper 1 Teaspoon
Freshly ground black peppercorns 1/2 Teaspoon
Beer 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Tabasco sauce 1 Tablespoon
Peanut oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For deep frying)



Peel onions and slice into ¼-inches slices. Separate into rings and set aside.



In a medium-sized mixing bowl, place 1 cup of the flour, placing the remaining ½ cup flour in a bowl to be used later in the recipe.

To the 1- cup flour, add serrano chilis, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, beer, and Tabasco sauce. Whisk together.

In a heavy pot, heat peanut oil over medium heat to 350 degrees (F).

Use tongs to dip individual onion ring into flour, coating well. Dip flour-coated ring into batter, coating well. Shake off excess batter. Drop batter-coated ring into hot oil and fry until golden on top and bottom, turning once during the frying process. Repeat this procedure with the rest of the onion rings, frying a few at a time.

Place finished onion rings on paper toweling to drain and sprinkle them with coarse salt if desired.



Serve with hamburgers or steak.
