I think few recipes are more useful than a dip that goes with just about anything. A good, versatile dip will go with chips, veggies, crackers or any other socially acceptable method of spooning it into your mouth.
It would probably not be wise to only use your fingers to eat this dip…well in public anyway. At midnight, alone and in front of your fridge while the dog goes outside to pee? Sure, why not! Not that I have ANY experience with that scenario. Ever.
Caramelized Onion Dip
* Makes 2 ½ cups
What you need:
- 16oz Sour Cream or Plain Greek Yogurt
- 1 large red onion
- 1 large yellow onion
- 3 tablespoons butter*
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1.5 teaspoons onion powder
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- Black pepper
- Scallions, optional as a garnish
- Chips or veggies for serving
*more if needed
What you’ll do:
- In a large sauté pan melt the butter over medium-low heat. Slice the onions evenly and add to the pan. Cover and simmer 25-40 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the pan gets too dry, add more butter as needed.
- Once the onions are completely caramelized, remove from heat. Drain off any excess butter and allow to cool completely.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine sour cream, garlic powder, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Stir in onions and let sit in the refrigerator for approx 4 hours.
- When ready to serve, stir dip and taste for flavor. Add salt and pepper if needed.
