Seriously. OMG. Seriously.
I don't even like chips.
Or onion dip.
I mean skeeve.
But the next time you have a party. Make this.
I'm sure you're like: Bitch, please. Where was this two weeks ago for the freakin' Super Bowl?
Yeah. I know I suck. Maybe you can get it in for those riveting World Cup qualifier games. Or March Madness. That's big, right? Right?!
So the ratio of real onions to the trifecta of totally fattening clog-your-artery ingredients - mayo, cream cheese, sour cream - is like 3 to 1. I believe. I told myself. I really don't know. But whatever. That's what it looked like. And, oh right: You cook the onions in vegetable oil AND four tablespoons of butter. But, I mean who's counting?
This is a Barefoot Contessa recipe. So you know it's good. And she does not give a flying fig if this dip is healthy. And well, it's not!
This is more time consuming than opening a packet of tan chemicals labeled Onion Dip Mix and dumping it into a container of sour cream. But it so worth it. Your guests will love. Trust.
