    Cathy17's Note:

    My mom made this at a dinner party she had when dh and I went home recently. She served it with homemade chips made of toasted foccia bread. This has a bit more zip than the traditional onion soup mix dips without having to use the mix!

      The heat from the cayenne pepper makes this dip unique. I liked it best served on ridged potato chips. I got a full 2 cups of dip when making the recipe. Easy to make.

      REALLY GOOD STUFF. I didn't take the time to get out my food processor to slice the onions, so my slices were really to thick, which made it difficult to get out easily with your chip/bread. Next time I would probably just dice the onions. I liked the slight heat the cayenne gives it. The onions became so sweet that each time I ate some of it I kept thinking "did I put sugar in this recipe?" I even made the focaccia bread and they were as much of a hit at the party as the dip was. THANKS A BUNCH!

      I served this at my housewarming today and it was a total hit! I did make it ahead as another reviewer mentioned and the flavors did seem to meld overnight. I couldn't find my cayenne pepper so I used a bit of chipotle powder and loved it - I'll definitely make this again and again and again.
