Irma's Cream Cheese Green Onion Chip Dip

Recipe by ann1wp
READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 2 1/2 cups


  • Basic recipe
  • 2
    (8 ounce) packages cream cheese (Philadelphia is best!)
  • 14 - 12
    cup evaporated milk (you can use regular milk too)
  • Optional add-ins
  • 12 - 1
    teaspoon Bon Appetit seasoning mix (optional) or 1/2-1 teaspoon beau monde seasoning, mix (optional)
  • 1
    (6 ounce) can baby shrimp, drained (optional)
  • onion powder (optional) or salt (optional)
  • garlic powder (optional) or salt (optional)
  • red chili pepper flakes (optional)
  • dill (optional)
  • cajun seasoning, etc (optional)


  • Put cream cheese in mixer bowl to soften.
  • Clean and remove roots, then slice green onions thinly. Use all the white tips, most of the light green parts, and slice two or three using the dark green tops for some color. It should be 1/4-1/2 c of onion bits, to your taste. Set aside.
  • Start beating cream cheese with mixer, adding milk slowly, until the mixture is smooth and creamy. You may need more or less milk to get the consistency you want.
  • Add Bon Appetit using more or less, to your taste and/or any other spices or herbs you want to use.
  • Add green onions and mix until they're evenly distributed. Taste and add more seasoning or more milk, as needed.
  • If you add shrimp, do it last, so they don't get too broken up.
  • Chill for 1-2 hrs or overnight to let the flavors blend-that never happens at our house, lol, but it does taste better the next day if you can wait!
  • In a pinch, I have used regular onions, chopped fine. I have even used dehydrated onion flakes, soaked in the milk. This is a very versatile and forgiving recipe. Have fun with it!
