Caramelized Onion Dip

We’ve updated classic onion dip by swapping the pack of dehydrated Lipton soup mix for real caramelized onions and goat cheese—but the sweet, salty, tangy flavors that you remember are all there. Reminisce with a bag of potato chips.

Game plan: The dip can be made up to 2 days in advance and refrigerated in a covered container; stir briefly before serving.

TThis recipe was featured as part of our story on summer dips, as well as our Family-Friendly Party Done Right and Tailgating Recipes photo galleries.

Tips for Christmas


  1. 1Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium-low heat. When it shimmers, add onion and garlic, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are caramelized and brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  2. 2Combine sour cream, chèvre, and chives in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment, add onion mixture, and pulse until combined, about 10 pulses. Taste and add salt and freshly ground black pepper as desired, then pulse a few more times to mix in seasoning.
  3. 3Transfer to a serving bowl, cover, and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. Serve with potato chips or crudités.
