“Delicious Onion Rings with Chipotle Powder. It has a smokey flavored kick to them. Measurements are approximate; I eyeball it. I deep fry. I originaly started with the Fried Vegetables recipe on the back of the Kentucky Kernel Seasoned Flour from Hudgson Mill, Inc.. It was way too salty for my taste. So I added the rest, and now I love the taste. Probably good for other vegetables too.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 large vidalia onion
  • 5 tablespoons kentuckey kernel seasoned flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 12 cup artisan 100% organic all-purpose wheat flour (King Arthur brand)
  • 1 tablespoon powdered chipotle pepper (I like things medium hot.)
  • 34 tablespoon garlic powder (I tend to go heavy on the garlic)
  • 12 tablespoon onion powder
  • peanut oil (for frying)


  1. Preheat deep fryer oil to 350 deg.
  2. Mix batter: Kentuckey Kernel Flour, egg and water.
  3. Slice onion in thick rings, and separated.
  4. Mix DRY INGREDIENTS [mix in large plastic baggie]: All purpose flour, Chipotle Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and set aside.
  5. Dip individual onion rings into batter.
  6. Take onion rings out of batter and place in dry ingredients, coat liberally.
  7. Fry a few coated onions in at least 2 inches of 350 deg. oil for 2-3 minutes. Several batches may be needed. I just keep the onion rings in the baggie until I have room for them in the oil.
