Caramelized Onion Dip

Caramelized Onion Dip

So, I promise that I won’t mention the Super Bowl anymore after I say these final few things. But they’ve been on my mind and I have to get them out there.

  1. I don’t even know who is playing. I’m just here for the food.
  2. Everyone seems to be pretty excited about the Bruno Mars half time show. I frankly don’t understand why people aren’t more excited to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I am counting down the minutes until the half time show because, well, it’s the Chili Peppers. Who cares about Bruno Mars? Honestly, who?
  3. Have you SEEN the Budweiser Clydesdale commercial from this year? If you are waiting until the Super Bowl to view it, more power to you. But it’s probably the best one I’ve seen in a long time and it brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. Adorable.
  4. Dips, dips and more dips. I love parties that have lots of different options, especially tons of dips. I’m more of a grazer and will load up my plate with lots of different bites. This dip is definitely one of my favorites.

And so that brings us to today. Caramelized onion dip. Now, I’ve shared a similar recipe before but the photo was clearly lacking and the recipe just needed a little extra finesse.  Either way, you’ll never go back to the powdered onion dip again. And this couldn’t be simpler to whip up. Whether you are going somewhere for a game or staying home and watching, you’ll want to have some of this quick and easy dip on hand.
