    This is fantastic on grilled burgers, and also can be served as a dip for crackers or potato chips, make as spicy as you like by adjusting the Tabasco sauce

      This is a great dip. I chopped the onions for ease of eating. I didn't add the butter and I cut back on the oil. I'll be making this often as it will go great on many things.

      Tomorrow it will be exactly 1 year since I reviewed a recipe here. The "takeover" turned me off, I guess, but it's no surprise that I've come back to review one of YOUR recipes, Kitten! :) I should start by saying that I made some changes, but I think the significant aspects of this recipe are those I didn't change. Before I even chose a recipe to use them in, I had caramelized 5 onions using Mark Bittman's method in "How to Cook Everything Vegetarian". He starts with nothing in the pan but the onions and adds 2T butter or olive oil once the onions have dried up some. Anyway, this dip was over-the-top delicious! It was a bit difficult to scoop before I attacked it with a stick blender, but maybe I shouldn't have done that.... I had always been able to defy the "Lay's Potato Chips... nobody can eat just one" claim all these years, but when they were all decked out in this dip, there was no stopping me. Thank you once again, Carol, for sharing a wonderful and versatile recipe!
