Escaping sports seems impossible in my house. There’s always some guy hitting, swinging at, throwing or dunking some sort of ball when it comes to weekend TV viewing. I figure if I can’t beat ‘em, then I can at least eat something yummy and pretend to feign interest. I couldn’t think of anything that goes better than chips and dip, and boy have I got a surprise for you. We’re not opening any packets in my house. Instead, we’re slicing and sautéing some onions for a tasty treat. The prep is incredibly easy but the pay-off is priceless: homemade onion dip without the artificial aftertaste. The secret is caramelizing the onions. The rest is child’s play—literally, the kids will have a blast pulsing the ingredients into a creamy dip worthy of any chip…or carrot stick.
