  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 medium yellow onions, or white onions
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • salt


Preheat oil to 360°.


To make the chili sauce, combine the mayonnaise, chili sauce, chili powder and cayenne in a small bowl and stir well. Cover and chill until serving time.


For the onion rings: Slice the onions into very thin rings and separate the rings. Spread them out and sprinkle with seasoned salt. Place the flour in a re-sealable plastic bag. Put the onion rings, in batches, in the bag, close tightly, and shake until the onion rings are coated.


Pour the oil into a Dutch oven. Fry the onion rings in batches for 3 to 4 minutes, until they are brown and crispy. Remove with tongs and drain on paper towels. Taste and season with salt, if necessary. Serve with chili sauce.
