Onion Rings with Smoky Ranch Dip

Prep time30 min
Total time30min
ServingsMakes 16 servings, about 2 onion rings and 1 Tbsp. dip each.
  • 1 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 large sweet onion (3/4 lb.)
  • 6 Tbsp. flour, divided
  • 1 qt. (4 cups) oil
  • 70 RITZ Everything Crackers, finely crushed, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¾ cup beer, divided
  • Mix dressing and paprika until blended. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Cut thin slice off both ends of onion; discard or reserve for another use. Cut remaining onion into 1/2-inch-thick slices; separate into rings. Remove any rings that are too small for dipping; reserve for another use. Toss remaining onion rings with 2 Tbsp. flour in large bowl.
  • Heat oil in large saucepan or Dutch oven on medium heat to 350°F. Meanwhile, combine 1/2 cup cracker crumbs with cornstarch, baking powder and remaining flour in medium bowl. Gradually stir in 1/2 cup beer with fork or whisk. Let stand 5 min. to thicken to consistency of pancake batter.
  • Place remaining cracker crumbs in shallow dish. Dip onion rings, 1 at a time, in batter then in cracker crumbs, turning to evenly coat both sides of each ring with each ingredient. (Note: Add remaining beer, 1 to 2 Tbsp. at a time, to batter as needed for proper dipping consistency.) Carefully add onion rings, in small batches, to hot oil; fry 2 to 3 min. or until crisp and deep golden brown. Use slotted spoon to remove onions from oil; drain on paper towel-covered baking sheets.
  • Serve warm with dressing mixture.
Recipe Tips
  • Note
    For best results, use an onion at least 2 inches in diameter. This makes for easier dipping and frying. If you don't have a onion that large, you can instead cut 2 smaller onions into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Pick the 32 largest slices to use to prepare this recipe. Refrigerate remaining onion pieces until ready to use as desired.
  • Size Wise
    Balance your food choices throughout the day to make room for these onion rings on occasion.
  • Substitute
    Substitute finely chopped canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for the smoked paprika.
