Deep Fried Poblano Chili Pepper Rings

This is a nice twist instead of onion rings, but you can always add an onion or two into the mix.

A few days ahead of time, you want to start a batch of Sourdough starter. Do this by softening 1 package of active dry yeast in a qt. of lukewarm water in a large bowl or crock.

Add 2 tbsp. sugar and 4 cups of all-purpose flour. Beat to mix. Cover bowl with a towel, and set aside in a warm place for 2-4 days to sour. After your mixture has reached the desired sourness, keep it in the refrigerator. If the starter mix is not used very often, make sure you stir flour and water into it every 10 days to keep it active and fresh.

When your starter is ready, it is time to make Poblano rings.

12 Poblanos, with stems, seeds, and membranes removed. Cut into 1\2 rings or strips.

Put 1 cup of sourdough starter in a bowl & coat the pepper rings.

Dredge rings in a mixture of 1 cup flour, 2 tsp. chili powder & 1 tsp. salt(optional).

Heat  oil in your stove top deep fryer, or counter top deep fryer to 375 degrees F or in a large cast iron skillet,  heat enough vegetable oil to come 2 to 3 inches up the sides of the pan to 375 degrees F.

Fry the poblanos, a few at a time, until golden brown, turning once, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.

Serve up with some spiced up ketchup, try adding 1\3 cup cider vinegar & 2 tsp hot sauce, like Tabasco into a 1\2 cup of ketchup.
