Caramelized Onion Dip

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 : )

Caramelized Onion Dip

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Serve the dip with pita chips or thick, salt and pepper kettle-cooked potato chips, (this was my choice- YUM!!!)
