Warm Onion Dip

Another New Year's Eve creation with the help of Cat Cora. Once you try this you will never want store-bought again. It's amazing. Especially since you probably have most, if not all of the ingredients at any given time. The onions are caramelized so they give the dip a little sweetness and it's just...heavenly. I could eat a whole batch right now. You just don't even know.

Warm Onion Dip
 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup finley chopped onion (vidalia, walla walla, maui, or yellow)
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup finely grated sharp white cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp chopped fresh chives

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it is hot but not shimmering. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until it just begins to brown (about 2 minutes). Reduce the heat to low and cover, and cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes
3. In a bowl, mix the mayo, sour cream, cheddar, Tabasco, and salt. Add the onion and stir until evenly distributed.

Spread the dip in a small, shallow dish and bake until bubbling and slightly browned, about 20 minutes. Stir in the chives. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.

Even my cat liked this dip. I wish I had gotten a picture but he was sniffing my dip so I let him and he just went to town licking it. So you know it must be good, right?

And you know what this would be perfect for? The Super Bowl! That's what you should do. You should make this dip and invite some people over so you don't eat it all yourself.

Good plan.
