Tastes from Home with Frito-Lay recipe Contest & Giveaway



Lays has a new line of potato chips that were  inspired by popular American regional cuisine and include:


1. Northeastern U.S. – Lay’s Honey Mustard
2. Midwestern U.S. – Lay’s Creamy Garden Ranch
3. Northwestern U.S. – Lay’s Balsamic Sweet Onion
4. Southwestern U.S. – Lay’s Chipotle Ranch
5. Southeastern U.S. – Lay’s Cajun Herb & Spice


All of the Lay's Regional Flavored potato chips are made with all natural ingredients and cooked in healthier oils, like corn and sunflower oils, which contain 80% or more of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat - the "good fats." They also contain 0 grams of trans fats per serving!

There’s also less sodium in them than you might think – a 1-oz serving of our Lay’s Regional Flavored potato chips contains less salt than a plain bagel!

I can't wait to try the Lay’s Honey Mustard and the  Lay’s Creamy Garden Ranch!

I live in the Northwestern region of the United States which inspired the Lay’s Balsamic Sweet Onion flavor.  I actually think this is super appropriate because one of our regions most loved festivities is the rib cook-off where you can also partake in yummy beer battered onion rings made with sweet onions.  Not content with enjoying these yummy onion rings only once a year, my hubby and I were bound and determined to recreate our own version at home.  Here is our recipe:







Beer-Battered Onion Rings




Ingredients:

Onions


1-1/2 cups flour


1-1/2 cups beer,  room temperature


2 large Sweet onions


oil for deep frying

Directions:

1. To prepare the batter for the onion rings, thoroughly whisk together flour and beer. Let batter stand, covered, at room temperature for at least 3 hours.

2. Slice onions 1/4-inch thick. Separate into rings.

3. Pour oil into a large frying pan about 3 inches deep.  Heat.

4. With metal tongs, dip a few onion rings into batter, then carefully put them into the hot oil.

5. Fry, turning the rings a couple of times until golden brown. Remove from oil.
