I made this dip for a group watching the Outback Bowl (on New Year's Day). Everyone seemed to love it. One guy got a plate of chips and poured the dip over them. I used half a large onion as Suzanne suggested (it was still a lot of onion but not too much). I also used one 4 oz can of chopped jalapeno and one of chopped chilis instead of fresh. Next time, I will make it a bit more chucky - maybe with mushrooms? Thanks!

I made this last year for a party. I would make it again, but I wouldn't use that much onion again! I love onions myself, but it was too much for some people.
