Chili's Awesome Blossom
Ingredients:
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 prepared onion
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons McCormick Season All
1/2 teaspoons coarsely-ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
1 cup buttermilk
=== DIPPING SAUCE ===
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons catsup
1/2 teaspoons McCormick Season All
1/8 teaspoons red pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh horseradish
1/4 teaspoons paprika

Mix all dry ingredients together. Onion may be sliced like a blossom by
cutting the top 1/4th off, the top has the stem. Then peel and be very
careful to leave the root intact. Carefully slice from the top of the
onion down but stop about 1/2 inch before you get to the root, taking care
not to cut through the root. Slice the rest of the onion like a pie into
many servings. When complete, soak onion in ice-cold water for 1/2 hour
so the onion's petals will start to open up and bloom.

Drain onion and dip in flour mixture and dust well. Dip onion then in
buttermilk and back in flour mixture. Place in hot oil and fry until
golden. Oil should cover onion. When done, drain well and place on plate
and cut center out of onion so the petals may easily be removed.

Dipping Sauce: Mix all together and serve in the middle of the onion
blossom. Garnish with paprika and just a dash of red pepper.

This recipe yields ?? servings.
