Caramelized Onion Dip #FoodieFootballFans


If there is one dip that we can all agree on, it's a caramelized onion dip. Homemade is so much more satisfying than a store-bought version! I still haven't figured out how to make ridged potato chips, so we noshed on the dip for a decadent afternoon snack with slices of German rye bread.

Other members of the Foodie Football Fans also had dips on the brain, such as the Chicken Swiss Dip by The Life Jolie, Creamy Pepita Dip by The Mexitalian, Jalapeño Ranch Dip by A Joyfully Mad Kitchen, and Corn Dip by Me and My Pink Mixer. I think I need to have party where everyone brings their favorite dip. What do you think about that?

Well, we might need a few heartier dishes. I can't wait to try Traeger Pulled Pork by Or Whatever You Do, Slow Cooker Apple Cider Chicken Sliders by Cake 'n Knife, and Chorizo Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates by Feast + West.


The Full Line-Up


Caramelized Onion Dip

Ingredients
  • 2 T butter
  • splash of olive oil
  • 2 sweet onions, peeled and diced
  • 8 oz block of cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 C organic sour cream
  • 1/4 C beer (I used a porter)
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 t smoked paprika
  • dash of ground coriander

Procedure
In a medium skillet, melt the butter in a splash of olive oil. Stir in the onions and cook the onions until softened and beginning to turn translucent.

Pour in the beer and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until the onions are caramelized. Take care that they don't burn!


In a mixing bowl, stir together the cream cheese, sour cream, and spices. Fold in the caramelized onions until well mixed. Serve warm.
