Deep-Fried Pepper Rings

I’ve fried (and devoured) my share of deep-fried onion rings. And deep-fried pickles. And deep-fried jalapenos. These deep-fried pepper rings were different. The peppers are a bit crunchy. And they’re a bit sweet. You get that great pepper flavor, all surrounded in a great crunchy coating that sticks to each and every pepper perfectly. Great for dipping.

Deep Fried Pepper Rings

I absolutely loved the dipping sauce for these deep-fried pepper rings. I’m a huge fan of Old Bay. Anita doesn’t like it if it’s too strong. But she loved this sauce. It has the just the right amount of Old Bay. It’d be great for dipping much more than just these rings. Make extra and use it with chips, fries and fresh veggies.

Also try my deep-fried jalapeno slices.
