Caramelized Onion Dip
This is the second recipe in a row from my Pillsbury Greatest Recipes magazine, those people know what they’re doing! This dip is SO flavorful, and has a hint of sweetness from the caramelized onions, my husband and I ate this UP- We got some nice thick kettle cooked chips to eat with it, it was awesome. Veggies would be delicious too! This is a sure crowd pleaser, I can’t wait to make it again : )
- ¼ cup butter or margarine
- 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
- 1 medium red onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Additional chopped fresh chives, if desired
- In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Cook onions in butter 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until very soft and light golden brown. Add vinegar; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; cool completely, about 20 minutes.
- In medium bowl, mix sour cream, cream cheese, 2 tablespoons chives, the salt and pepper. Stir in caramelized onions. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving time. Garnish with additional chives.
- Serve the dip with pita chips or thick, salt and pepper kettle-cooked potato chips, (this was my choice- YUM!!!)
