Caramelized Onion Dip

This is a terrific dip from the Barefoot Contessa. Once you try it, you'll never want to eat that dried soup mix stirred into sour cream again. I think it tastes best with homemade potato chips or kettle-cooked chips. This is a great addition to your summer party menus.

Caramelized Onion Dip
4 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 onions, halved and sliced into thin rings
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
1/ 2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
Potato chips

1. Melt butter in oil in a skillet. Stir in onions and next 3 ingredients; cook, stirring occasionally, at medium heat for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until onions are soft and caramel colored.
2. Combine mayonnaise and next 2 ingredients in a bowl; stir in onion mixture until blended. Serve with potato chips.
