Party season is upon us so it’s super handy to have an arsenal of quick party food that you can whip up no matter how busy you are.
And while I always prefer cooking from scratch when I can. Some of my favorite easy dips are olive tapenade and hot onion dip made entirely from scratch, you’re missing out – there are many times when I simply don’t have time to make it from scratch.
And this French Onion Dip made with French Onion Soup Mix has saved me many times. MANY times!
Even though it’s made using a French Onion Soup Mix, my twisted logic tells me that because I didn’t buy it in a tub from the store, it is semi home-made. 🙂
And I can absolutely promise you, it is BETTER than store bought because it’s creamier. So many French Onion Dips sold at stores are rock hard when cold so the chips break when you try to scoop up dip. This French Onion Dip is soft even straight from the fridge – no more broken chips! 😉
There are versions of this made with just sour cream and French Onion Soup Mix. But I really feel that the addition of mayonnaise makes a huge difference – adds richness and more layers of flavor.
Even though using standard rather than salt reduced French Onion Soup Mix is fine, the reason I prefer salt reduced is because I find that some chips are so salty anyway that you don’t need a super salty dip. But really, it’s up to you! If serving with salt reduced or lightly salted chips or crackers, then standard rather than salt reduced soup mix is just fine.
Give this a try! I promise you will LOVE it. Seriously tastes just like store bought!
- 400 g / 14 oz sour cream full fat is better

- Rest for 5 minutes or until onion bits in the soup mix become softened.
