This Caramelized Onion Dip is a blend of sour cream, mayonnaise, and sweet caramelized onions. It is perfect for game day, parties, or anytime you crave chips and dip.
I’m a dip girl. I’m the one hanging out next to the dip bowl at parties. In fact, I love appetizers in general. I am perfectly happy making a meal out of appetizers – if the opportunity presents itself! But what’s better than good old, tried and true chips and dip?
Caramelized onion dip is one of my all-time favorite dips. The caramelized onions get so sweet and combined with the creaminess of the sour cream and mayo, it’s a match made in heaven – dip heaven.
Dips are perfect for game day, party nights, New Year’s Eve, or just anytime you have a hankering for chips and dip. Fresh veggies are delicious with this dip too. This dip is easy to make. The only work involved is caramelizing the onions. But this effort is well worth it. Caramelized onions are sweet and delicious and add so much flavor to this dip.

A creamy dip of sour cream and mayonnaise loaded with caramelized onions. Perfect for parties or game day.
- 1 medium or large yellow onion
- 1 1/2 cups sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon season salt
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- pinch of cayenne pepper
- oil, for caramelizing the onions
Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat with a tablespoon of oil. Cut the onion into thin slices and add to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally until the onions have turned a deep brown color, approx. 20-30 minutes. A sprinkling of sugar can be added to assist with the caramelization if desired.
Let the onions cool, chop into smaller pieces and add to a mixing bowl. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Refrigerate overnight, preferably, to allow the flavors to blend.
Serve with chips or fresh veggies.
