I'm not a huge football fan, which is why I completely forgot that the Super Bowl was this weekend. I had originally made plans to go out thrift store shopping with a friend, but someone pointed out that my culinary talents were needed and instead I'll be home cooking up a storm for everyone who will be here watching the game. We'll be having home made pizza and potato skins, but no gathering complete without my absolute all time favorite party food, onion dip. I'm not sure what it is about onion dip that makes it so addictive, but I can easily put away an entire batch by myself. This version may be more complicated than opening up a container of sour cream and adding a packet of onion soup mix, but the complex flavors that the caramelized onions add are definitely worth the extra time and effort. Whether you're planning a party or watching the game by yourself, this dip is sure to be a hit.

- Once the onions have cooled, place in a blender or food processor and pulse several times.
- Add sour cream, mayonnaise, dried minced garlic, sea salt, and black pepper and pulse until well combined.
- Place in a serving bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least two hours to give the flavors time to combine.
- Serve chilled with pita chips, potato chips, or veggie sticks. Enjoy!
