I had been eyeing this dip from Pinterest for a while because it was touted "the best chip dip ever". When my Mom and brother came to visit a couple of weeks I decided it was time to whip it up. It is a homemade, much much better, and highly addictive version of the French Onion dip that comes in a tub from the grocery store. I loved that it could be made ahead of time and tasted great the next day too. Make sure you have a big bag of Ruffles on hand for this tasty snack.
Homemade French Onion Dip
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, minced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 cup sour cream
4 ounces fresh goat cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives (we don't have these in Okinawa so I used green onions)
Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Wait until oil is heated through and add onion and garlic. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook, stirring occasionally until caramelized and brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Combine sour cream, goat cheese, and chives in the bowl of a food processor and add onion mixture. Pulse until combined, about 10 pulses.
Taste and add salt and pepper as desired, pulsing to mix in seasoning. Transfer to a serving bowl and refrigerate at least one hour. Serve with potato chips or crudites.
