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