The key to these addictive onion rings is to use sweet onions, such as the Texas 1015 variety or Walla Wallas from Washington. Coat the onions just before frying. You can use the adobo sauce that canned chipotle chiles are packed in, or buy adobo sauce on its own. Canned chipotles and adobo sauce are now available at most supermarkets.  More Delicious, Quick Side Dishes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large bowl, whisk the milk with 1/2 cup of the flour and the adobo sauce until smooth. Add the onion rings and toss to moisten with the mixture.

Step 2    

In a cast-iron skillet, heat the oil to 350°. In a large paper bag, combine the remaining 1 cup of flour with the cornmeal, cumin and 1/2 tablespoon salt. Working in batches, dredge the onions in the cornmeal mixture, shaking off the excess. Transfer to a baking sheet.

Step 3    

Working in batches, fry the onion rings in the hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Using tongs, transfer to paper towels to drain. Season with salt and serve immediately.
