      This is delicious! We loved the little zip from the cayenne pepper, and the caramelized onions became so sweet and flavorful. Fat free sour cream and mayo worked great here. Thanks for sharing!

      I was looking for a French Onion Dip recipe that didn't contain any MSG, which is in most dry soup mixes. After all, who CAN'T mix an envelope of nion soup mix with some sour cream? This was absolutely fresh and delightful! I did, however, add a couple of diced scallion tops, just for color, but it made the taste fabulous! Thanks for taking the time to share this recipe!
