What is it about onion dip that makes it so unbelievably addictive? Growing up (and honestly, even now), I always would make a bee-line directly for the onion dip at backyard bbqs. And yes, almost always it was that powdered mix variety that was combined with a container of sour cream. And sometimes it was even served within that sour cream container. You know what I’m talking about, right?
Just something about that cool and creamy concoction made it impossible to resist. The bowl of potato chips didn’t hurt either.
This is the slightly more sophisticated sibling to the powdered dip mix. Yes it takes a little bit more work than opening up a packet and stirring, but it’s well worth it. Trust me 🙂
Caramelizing the onions help to develop an intensely rich, deep, and sweet flavor. Mixing them up with some thick creamy goodness, and well, that makes for one crazy good party dip.
And when picking a potato chip, I prefer a strong, sturdy one. There is nothing worse than a weak potato chip that crumbles as it tries to pick up a bit of dip. Then you’re trying to pick the pieces out and ugh, it’s not pleasant. Go for the good stuff.
