Though I don’t have much of a use for dips, I’m glad I found a homemade version of the usual onion soup mix dip. This dip is delicious! Plan ahead by a day, because it needs time for the flavors to blend. Once you try caramelized onion dip, you won’t want to go back to the “easy” version!
Cook over medium heat until the onions soften:
3 large onions, thinly sliced
Put the heat on low and cook for 35-40 minutes, or until the onions are browned and sticky (not burned!) Stir occasionally to make sure they don’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
Mix the onions with the following:
1 1/2 c. sour cream
3/4 c. mayo
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. pepper
1 t. balsamic vinegar
Refrigerate the caramelized onion dip overnight so the flavors can develop. Serve it with chips or French bread! We are big fans of potato chips, as you can probably tell by the title.
