2 Progressive Farms Chili Peppers of your choice, seeded and diced
3 large Progressive Produce Mayan Sweet Onions
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
½ lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 cups all-purpose flour
5 eggs, lightly beaten
1 bag of chips of your choice
48 oz avocado oil, for frying
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 2–4 min
1Heat oil in a deep heavy skillet to 375° F.
2Peel and slice sweet onions into ¾" to 1" thick slices and carefully pull apart rings.
3In a medium bowl, combine diced peppers, cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix until smooth.
4Place onion rings on a metal tray lined with parchment paper. Fill each ring with the pepper mixture and place tray in freezer for at least 2 hours so the stuffed rings become firm.
5Using a food processor, pulse the chips of your choice until crushed into fine crumbs. Place crumbs in a shallow bowl. Place flour in a second shallow bowl and the beaten eggs in a third shallow bowl.
6Coat each frozen stuffed ring in flour, dip in the beaten eggs, then cover with the crushed chip crumbs. To double coat, dip back into the beaten eggs and then back into the chip crumbs to cover. Repeat this process for each stuffed sweet onion ring.
7Fry the rings in oil for 2–4 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Be careful not to fry too long because the cheese could ooze out.
8Drain on a wire rack or paper towels. Enjoy!
