Easy Homemade Onion Dip
This makes a great appetizer (to take to a Super Bowl party) and is so easy to do that you’ll never bother with the dried onion soup mix version. Serve with crackers, red bell pepper sticks or better yet, make some homemade pita chips.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 large onions (about 1lb) finely diced
½ teaspoon kosher salt
8 ounces cream cheese
6 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When shimmering, add onion, ½ teaspoon salt and sauté, stirring frequently, until the onion softens completely and starts to brown, about 9-10 minutes (reduce heat if onions brown too quickly).
2. Transfer onions to a food processor and the cream cheese, sour cream, thyme and cayenne. Pulse until mixture is well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
