how to make great southwest onion-rings

How to make spicy Southwestern buttermilk onion-rings .

I love onion-rings. I have always loved onion rings more than french fries in fact I can't stand french fries but I do like a baked potato with sour cream.

Down in Tempe Arizona there used to be this great college restaurant that closed down that had the best thickest onion rings within Arizona if i remember correctly it was long wongs wings

I used to go there with my girlfriend and if it was crowded and get the onion rings to go. Anyway their onion rings were great and I used to stop in the car and just to eat them with her out of the bag. They were thick and juicy giant onion rings the way healthy rings should grow .
