Chili Sauce:

1 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons chili sauce

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Onion Rings:

2 medium white or yellow onions

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

2 cups all-purpose flour

Vegetable oil, for deep frying



  1. Preheat oil to 360 degrees F.
  2. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Taste and season with salt, if necessary. Serve with chili sauce.
