Skip the prefab dips in the market; this homemade version calls for caramelized Vidalia onions and reduced-fat sour cream and cream cheese for all the flavor you love with less guilt.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 Vidalia onions (1 pound total), finely chopped

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream

  • 2 ounces reduced-fat bar cream cheese, room temperature

  • 1 ½ teaspoons white-wine vinegar

  • ¼ cup finely chopped chives

  • Potato chips, for serving


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Add onions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine onions, sour cream, cream cheese, vinegar, and chives; season with salt and pepper. Chill dip until slightly thickened, about 1 hour; or cover and refrigerate up to 2 days. Serve with chips.
