Here is a great entertaining recipe for any get together or party. I have wonderful food memories from my childhood eating onion dip when my parents entertained. It was a favorite dip in our house, probably in many houses. You opened a dry soup mix and added it to sour cream and bam it ‘s a dip. Let me say I loved it growing up. In fact, my early days of cooking included many recipes using store bought soup in a package or can. Of course today, I love using fresh ingredients and with a little more effort the results deliver much better flavor and are far more healthy. You’ll love this onion dip – caramelizing the onions is the part that requires the most time, but the results are worth your time. Serve with your favorite potato chips and enjoy!

Caramelized Onion Dip
- 1 large sweet onion, sliced thinly
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon sriracha hot chili sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup good quality mayonnaise
In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the onions and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 25 minutes. Let the onions cool slightly, about 15 minutes.
In a food processor add 1/2 the onions and the remaining ingredients and blend. Stir in the onions and adjust salt and pepper to taste. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Serve at room temperature.
