We had friends over today and I thrust two new dips on them to try. They didn’t appreciate being THRUST at, but they did like the dips. I’ll post the second one soon. (It’s a bean dip.) Today’s dip is…drum roll…Chip Dip! Or, if you want to be all hipster/hoity-toity you could call it Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Dip. I called it that at first and then I said, ah, fuck it. It’s Chip Dip. This is from CHOW. But if it’s too much effort to go to their site, the recipe will follow the pictures.

 

THE INGREDIENTS

.

ChipDip1

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, medium dice (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives

THE PROCESS

1. This is actually a pretty easy dip, but it does require caramelizing onions. Basically, you chop the onions in a food processor because doing it by hand is too much effort. Then you put them in a pan that’s heated and has a dollop of butter or olive oil. Then you cook them on a lower setting for about 20 minutes. Your entire house will smell of onions. You will smell of onions. Your skin will have an onion SHEEN. (I hate this part.) Once they’re nice and brown, take them off the burner then run upstairs for a shower.

2. Put the garlic and chives in a food processor and pulse. Then add in all the remaining ingredients and pulse until it’s smooth. Taste, add some kosher salt and some pepper.

3. Put in a pretty bowl and refrigerate.

FINAL THOUGHTS

.

Serve with potato chips and/or root chips. Also good with pita chips. I bet it’d be great on a veggie sandwich with olives, roasted bell peppers, and basil. Ohmygod. I think…that last idea just made my loins quiver.

A good dip will do that to you.

Make. You. Quiver.
