Bourbon Onion Dip

Yes, you read that right. Bourbon. Onion. Dip. And it’s so easy to make! 

Sautee 2 large sweet onions (sliced or grated) over high heat in olive oil. Once they begin to cook, reduce the heat and add a half cup of your favorite bourbon. Keep the heat low and cook for an additional 40 minutes or until your onions have caramelized. Pull the onions out and place them on a cooking sheet to cool in the refrigerator. Hang on to a tablespoon of the leftover bourbon for later.

Still with us? Fire up that electric mixer because here comes the easy part:

Combine a half cup each of ricotta cheese and sour cream, along with ¾ cup of Greek yogurt. Mix until smooth. Take the onions out of the fridge and add them to the mixture. If you still have large chunks of onion, chop them more finely before adding. Throw in the last tablespoon of bourbon, a pinch of salt and a dash of lemon juice and you’re all set! Serve chilled with Shearer’s Kettle Cooked Chips in any flavor.
