Author Holly


  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped finely
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 1 container (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly chopped chives optional
  • Ruffles potato chips (that's what we prefer) or any type of chips and crackers for dipping


  • In a large saucepan, over medium-high heat, add butter and oil. Add chopped onions when butter melts. Stir onions often until they turn a golden brown and start to caramelize. This can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes depending on the size of your pan. Add in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, when the onions are cooking. The water will absorb from the heat.
  • In the meantime, combine the sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon of chives in a medium bowl.
  • Add the cooked onions to the dip mixture and stir until combined. Place the dip in the refrigerator for an hour before serving and top with leftover chives. Stir one more time when chilled and sprinkle more chives on top. Dip with your favorite chips!
    *If you like your dip on the thinner side you can always use more sour cream.
