Recipe type: Dips
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 3 whole onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tsp oil, your preference
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup Mexican crema or sour cream
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic, mashed
  • 1 tbsp flat leaf parsley, minced
  • ½ tbsp Worchestershire sauce
  • ¼ tsp salt, to taste
  • Chips, Pretzels, or vegetables
  1. Start by heating a large skillet on medium heat. Add the oil, and let that heat up for a minute or so. Add in your thinly sliced onions, and give a good stir. Season with a pinch of salt. Cook on medium to medium-low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring along the way, until the onions begin to brown and caramelize. Keep cooking until they are fully golden and caramelized. Once caramelized, remove from the heat, and let them cool.
  2. How to make caramelized onion dip
  3. To a mixing bowl, add in the remaining ingredients and give that a good mix. Taste. Does it need additional salt? If so, add a pinch or two more. Next, fold in the cooled, caramelized onions. Give that another good stir, then cover and place in the refrigerator for one hour to let the flavors come together.
  4. When you are ready to serve, remove the dip from the refrigerator and serve in one of your serving dishes along with the chips or pretzels, or vegetables.
  5. This dip completely dominates any store bough dip, sorry store dips. You get nice clusters of the sweet caramelized onions, along with the creaminess from the crema and cream cheese that is perfectly balanced by the worchestershire sauce and garlic. My wife, who is not the biggest fan of most any creamy dip was going back for more on this dip. That is always a great sign that I did something right. Give this one a shot on your next get together, and I guarantee you and your guests will love it.
