  1. CHIPOTLE MAYO: Blend peppers, oil, and lime juice in a blender until smooth. Fold mixture into mayo with cilantro. Season with the salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 1 hour before using.
  2. Heat frying oil to 350ºF. To make the batter, sift all the dry ingredients in a bowl together and make a well in the middle. In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together. Add the liquid to the well. Slowly whisk the ingredients together to a smooth consistency.
  3. Season the reserved flour with salt and pepper. Dredge the onion rings in the flour then dip in the batter. Drop in a 350ºF fryer and fry both sides until golden brown and crispy. Serve with the Chipotle Mayo as a dipping sauce.
