Did you grow up with this dip made from Lipton’s Onion Soup and Sour Cream? I did, and we considered it a real treat at our house. Served, of course, with Lay’s Potato Chips, the ridged ones. Or maybe it WAS Ruffles, as Kathryn pointed out in her comment. I don’t think Lay’s Wavy were out way back when in the ’60’s!
It’s been years, decades even, since I’ve made or tasted this dip, so I couldn’t resist trying it out with my home-made version of Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix.
The verdict? Well, it elicited an enthusiastic little moan from my Dad and I was like, “Dang. It really IS good.” And it beat the pants off any store-bought dip I’ve had…and was much cheaper! And so easy it’s dangerous…be sure to use a great sour cream for the best results.
If you’re looking for something a bit more sophisticated and have a bit more time on your hands, check out either of my Caramelized Onion Dips. One version has bacon and the other is a healthier one with Greek yogurt.

I’ll be bringing this dip over to Angie’s Fiesta Friday #157, cohosted this week by Andrea @ Cooking with a Wallflower and Su @ Su’s Healthy Living. Thanks, ladies, for making this link party possible!
