Sweet Onion Dip

Skip the prefab dips in the market; this cooked Vidalia dip is beyond better. The onions are subdued to begin with; cooking them concentrates their sugars for extra sweetness.

  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 2 (1 pound total) Vidalia onions,  finely chopped
  • Coarse salt
  • Ground pepper
  • 1 cup(s) reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 ounce(s) reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) white-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup(s) chives, finely chopped
  • Potato chips, for serving
  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Add onions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine onions, sour cream, cream cheese, vinegar, and chives; season with salt and pepper. Chill dip until slightly thickened, about 1 hour; or cover and refrigerate up to 2 days. Serve with chips.
