Oh My Onion Rings

Super Simple. Super Delish!

Vegetable oil for frying
2 large sweet Vidalia Onions (CHILLED in fridge)
2 cups Evaporated milk or 2 cups Buttermilk (i use buttermilk) (CHILLED in fridge)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp dried mustard
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 ts paprika
Course salt

** Why Chill the onions and milk? because cold onions and milk brings a crispy onion ring!

Dipping Sauce: (its for the onion rings ... I know its good.. but if you don't put the spoon down and leave it alone, you wont have any left for the rings)

1  cup reduced fat sour cream or reg sour cream
1/2 cup bottle taco sauce
1 T chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Bottled hot sauce (to taste) I use Louisiana Hot Sauce

Heat one inch of vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Cut onions across into 1 inch rings and separate. Discard the outer layer of skin on your rings. Pour milk into a small deep bowl. Mix flour with seasonings in a dish. Dip individual rings in milk, then flour, then milk again and finally the flour mixture again. Fry in single layer in hot oil until golden brown and flip. Remove to brown paper bag or paper towel lined surface to drain. Salt while hot.

For the dipping sauce, combine all ingredients and stir.
