Fried Onion Rings

The addition of cayenne pepper in this recipe makes these onion rings a little spicier than traditional ones. If you don't like spicy foods, eliminate the cayenne.

Vidalia onions are the best, but you can also try other brands. Just as long as they say "sweet" on them.

I wouldn't suggest just using any other kinds like yellow or purple. Not sure of what the taste would be.
