Two Ingredient Creamy Onion Chip Dip

Two Ingredient Creamy Onion Chip Dip

The winner of the Children’s Book “I’m the Scariest Thing in the Jungle” is Lori Nahoum! Congrats to you! I will contact you shortly to get your shipping info. Now to the recipe at hand…

Last week, on Halloween night my daughter Anna had a bunch of friends over for a little costume party.


They ate scones and giggled, and laughed, told a few funny stories to each other and then watched a scary movie. My friend Heather sent her kids to the party with a fabulous Creamy Onion Chip dip to share. Man, it was good. MyHandsomeHusband and I kept sneaking bites and saying to each other “Holy cats, what is in this!” and wondering things like “Gee wiz, how have we never eaten this fabulous dip before!” and “Good glory, this dip goes well with an almond joy or two or five.”

It was Halloween after all, and you know how chocolate gets to lurking around every corner on that day. 🙂

Creamy Onion Chip Dip from Jamie Cooks It Up!

So, like I always do when I taste something fabulous that I love and think you all will love too…I tracked down my cute friend Heather and asked for the recipe. She said it was so totally easy, I wouldn’t believe it…just two ingredients is all I would need to make it happen.


And here they are, ladies and gentlemen. Lipton Onion Soup Mix and good old Sour Cream.  I bet many of you have eaten this dip before, am I right? You can think of this post then, as a sort of reminder. Keep it in the back of your mind and pull it out when you have some cute hungry teenagers to feed, or for and appetizer at your thanksgiving table, you could make it on game day, on Sunday or a Monday…any day, would actually be a good fit come to think of it.

    Yum! You can also buy ranch dressing/dip mix in the salad dressing isle too and trade the mixes with the sour cream. Yum!

      Hi, Pat!Who knew? There’s nothing like nosotnp video games for bringing old college friends together. We never did order pizza: we survived the whole event on chips, guacamole, diet pop, and sugary sweets. I woke up at noon today; I think I’ll be getting to bed a little early tonight, but hopefully by tomorrow I’ll be fine.Pat, you would be proud to know that I defeated Jim’s Panthers using none other than the Cleveland Browns. The Browns are so low on the Madden 2005 radar that the players don’t have names. There was one play in which the Browns’ backup quarterback Number 1 was sacked by Panthers All-Star Julius Peppers. P.S. I was surprised not to get a comment in protest from you about the demise of Satire Fridays. I will try to keep it up with the satire on Word Munger, though.

      A pleasingly rational answer. Good to hear from you.

      Frankyb dit :Rendu le0, ils devraient plutf4t apelepr e7a le Clusterf*ck Chart of the Day . Je tiens e0 porter votre attention sur le troisie8me graphique. Je ne sais pas si c est voulu ou non mais j aime bien le tour de passe-passe visuel qu ilsa0semble essayer de fairea0avec lesa0donne9es: Si on regarde vite, on pourrait croire que la moyenne est proche de la me9diane et en regardant e0 l e9chelle de droite (proche des donne9es plus re9centes sur l axe des X) la moyenne est e0 25 semaines et la me9diane e0 20. Donc que 50% des gens se replacent en 20 semaines et moins mais qu un petit nombre de chf4meurs fausse la moyenne e0 la hausse en prenant tre8s longtemps e0 se replacer. Bref, on concluerait qu un petit groupe a beaucoup de difficulte9s mais que pour la majorite9,a0la situationa0n est pas trop pe9nible.Mais en re9alite9 les deux e9chelles ne sont pas du tout les meames. Ce qui fait en sorte que le nombre moyen de semaines passe9 sur le chf4mage est beaucoup plus bas que le nombre de semaines me9dian. C est donc l inverse qui se produit:a0un petit nombre de chf4meurs se replacent relativement rapidement maisa050% des gensa0stagnent eta0restent 30 semaines et plus sans emploi et non pas 20 semaines comme on pourrait le croire. La re9alite9 est donc que pour un petita0groupe de gens ce n est pas trop pe9niblea0mais qu un grand groupe a beaucoup de difficulte9s.Une personne peu habitue9 e0 lire des charts ou qui n y jetterait qu un coup d oeil rapide se ferait facilement avoir et croirait que la situation est plus rose que la re9alite9.a0Cela laisse supposer que laa0personne qui a fait le graphique avait des intentions malhonneates et cherchait e0 cacher quelque chose.

    I grew up eating this yummy dip but we always made it with 32 oz. of sour cream to one packet of soup mix. Super yummy but not as strong. 🙂
