Onion Rings w/Spicy Dipping Sauce

This is a Rachael Ray recipe.

Vegetable or canola oil for frying
2 large sweet Vidalia onions
2 cans evaporated milk, 5 ounces
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
Coarse salt

Dipping sauce:
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Heat 1 inch of vegetable or canola 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 evaporated milk into a small, deep bowl. Mix flour with seasonings in a pie plate or shallow dish. Dip individual rings in milk, then coat in flour. And repeat for a double dip. Fry in a single layer in hot oil until golden brown. Remove to brown paper bag or paper towel lined surface to drain. Salt while hot, to your taste.

For dipping sauce, combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir.

I love these onion rings. Saw Rachel Ray make them on 30 minute meals and made them for my family. We fell in love with them. Thanks for posting the recipe.
