Caramelized Onion Dip

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by alligirl

Taken from the CHOW newsletter: "The addition of goat cheese mimics the zip of Lipton’s famous onion soup mix. We’ve updated classic onion dip by swapping the pack of dehydrated Lipton soup mix for real caramelized onions and goat cheese—but the sweet, salty, tangy flavors you remember are all there. Reminisce with a bag of potato chips. This may be made up to 2 days in advance and refrigerated in a covered container; stir before serving." *Cook time is chill time*

I had big expectations for this dip because of all the good comments, but... I felt that there was something missing once I put it all together. I added some lemon juice and about 1/4 tsp of a Roasted garlic and herb mix to blend it out! I love goat cheese, but even I though it was a bit overpowering. Sorry, there are other onion dip recipes that I would try before I came back to this one.

  3. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  4. Combine sour cream, chèvre, and chives in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment; add onion mixture, and pulse until combined, about 10 pulses.
