Onion Dip Recipe

Hi there! It’s Kelly from Typically Simple! When Trish asked me to share a yummy appetizer for the Super Bowl, I just knew I had to let you all in on my go-to party appetizer.

A great appetizer dip to make for parties! Perfect for the Super Bowl!

This onion dip is one of the most requested appetizers by my family. Anytime we have a party, someone is sure to ask me if I will be bringing THE onion dip. I actually double, sometimes even triple, the recipe because it goes so fast!

After making it a few times, I have this recipe memorized! And I tend to improvise here and there with the measurements. If you like a little bit of a kick to your dips, this one is perfect because it calls fro cayenne pepper. But if you want to play it safe, it’s just as delicious without!

Onion Dip Recipe


  1. Cut the onions so you have about 3 cups
  2. heat the butter and oil in a large saute pan on medium heat
  3. add the onions, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper and saute for 10 minutes
  4. reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally for 20 more minutes until the onions are brown and caramelized
  5. allow the onions to cool
  6. place the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo in a bowl
  7. use an electric mixer and beat until smooth
  8. add the onions and mix well
  9. refrigerate for a few hours, serve cold

I usually serve the dip with pita chips, pretzels, or vegetable sticks. It really goes great with anything! At our last party, we ate it with tortilla chips!
