Caramelized Onion Dip

I have one final delicious recipe before the big game this weekend!

No Super Bowl party is complete without chips, but why buy the dip? 

This year, make you own chip dip!  Caramelized Onion Dip is a twist on the classic onion dip.  The caramelized onions add an amazing depth of flavor that will keep your guests coming back for more!

Not a potato chip fan?  Then grab some tortilla chips and don’t forget the salsa!

Recipe Notes:
*For a bigger impact, try serving the dip in a homemade bread bowl.

Caramelized Onion Dip
Adapted from Food Network

1 tbsp canola oil
2 cup thinly sliced white onions
¾ cup mayo with olive oil
¾ cup sour cream
2 green onions, white and green parts thinly sliced
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a medium sized skillet over medium heat.  Add the onions; stir to coat.  Cook the onions for 2-3 minutes or until slightly tender.

Reduce the heat to medium low.  Continue cooking, stirring occasionally until the onions reach a rich amber color, 20-30 minutes, stirring constantly during the last 5 minutes or so.

Place the caramelized onions in a bowl and set aside to cool.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the mayo and sour cream.  Stir in the cooled caramelized onions, green onions, salt, and pepper.

Cover the dip and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight to let the flavors blend together.

Just before serving, garnish with additional green onions.  Serve with potato chips or crusty bread.


  1. Oh my gosh this sounds amazing! This is the kind of dip that people put huge globs of on their chip. I will definitely be trying this, thanks for sharing!

  2. That looks amazing! And the great thing is that several people at the Super Bowl party don't like onions, so more for me! :)

  3. YUM!! Pinning, thanks for sharing!! Have a great weekend :)

  4. Ooh, that looks divine. I really wish my family liked onions. If I made this, I'd be forced to eat it all myself. Maybe I should go ahead and make it? ;)
