The No-time Party Dip!

The Headlines:

I can't cook.  I have no time.

But I love entertaining.  And I love yummy food.

Here's how to make a major yum dip for a major fun party!

Yea, it's pretty clear to most of you...  I can not cook.  In fact, I really don't enjoy it much.  I do it out of sheer necessity.  No eat, no life, no parties!  Wait, I do like "cooking" when I'm drinking a glass of wine and am watching my husband do most of the heavy lifting while I pour a cup of flour or something like that.  Yea, but honestly, those days are gone now that we've arrived in kid-ville.  Back to the point, I DO NOT ENJOY COOKING... like so many other women out there who say it's calming and even healing.  Good for you guys, by the way.  But that's why I love this dip.  It takes no time but packs a serious punch!  And it's versatile... perfect for a summer BBQ or, more appropriately to this time of year... a fall party!  In fact, I'm heading to a progressive dinner in a few weeks...I'm signed up for appetizers... this is what I'll be bringing.

Caramelized Onion Dip



Here's how you do it... you're gonna die it's so easy!  Grab your favorite toasted onion powder dip (due to the caramelized onions it works better than the green onion powders for this dish) and some sour cream and mix like you usually do.  Here's where the WOW comes in... thinly slice some onions  (don't dice) and first choice would be a yellow onion but anything works.  I used a red onion the time I took these pictures because that's all I had in my fridge!   Size: I would say a medium onion per about 16 ounces of sour cream (but it's really up to you how many onions you want in it)... pour some olive oil in a pan, add thinly sliced onions and sauté until they look caramelized.  About 5-10 minutes, depending upon how many onions there are or how much time you have... these below could have used a few more minutes but it was still major yum!


Then all you do is wait until they cool and add them to your sour cream dip already mixed together.  Voila! You can not go wrong.  And it soooo elevates a boring, old onion dip everyone makes at every-single-party-you-ever-go-to!  Enjoy -- now go have some fun and don't spend too much time in that kitchen!
