Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add onions and cook until semi-translucent (reduce heat if needed to prevent burning)

  • Remove from heat and let onions cool.
  • Meanwhile, mix together sour cream, cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth and creamy.
  • Stir in cooled onions.
  • Add remaining spices.
  • Taste mixture and adjust spices to your liking. Remember though, flavor will intensify greatly as it sits so be careful not to over season.
  • Add a few pinches of salt and pepper, to your liking, being sure to after each addition.
  • Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.
  • When ready to serve, stir and garnish with chives and parsely
  • Serve with chips or vegetables.

Notes

Be sure cream cheese is room temperature and soft or the dip will have small bits of cream cheese lumps in it.
Add a bit for sour cream if you prefer a thinner texture.
