A great dip, bursting with flavor! Wonderful with thick cut potato chips. Recipe courtesy of Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook


  • 2 large yellow onions
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/4 c. vegetable oil
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cayenne
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground pepper
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise (Hellman's)


  • Cut the onions in half, and then slice them into 1/8-inch-thick half rounds (you will have about 3 cups of onions.)
  • Heat the butter and oil in a large saute pan on medium heat. Add the onions, cayenne, salt, and pepper and saute for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 mor minutes, until the onions are browned and caramelized. Allow the onions to cool.
  • Place the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat until smooth. Taste for seasonings. Serve at room temperature.
