If you’re about to host some guests for a game or a movie night and you’re looking for an easy “junk food” to grace the table as a complement to your chips and veggie sticks, look no further than this easy two-ingredient onion dip. It does use some shortcuts, but it takes less than ten minutes to make and tastes delicious with a little crunch too. Here’s how to make it.

You’ll Need:

  • One tub of sour cream
  • French onion soup stock powder: About 3 tablespoons per 100 grams of sour cream, so 15 tablespoons for a standard 16oz (500 gram) container
  • Garnishes, if you wish

First, dump your sour cream into a large mixing bowl. Then, measure in your onion soup powder. Mix until well-combined.

Let sit for five minutes to give the onion flavor a chance to permeate, then mix again and taste. If it doesn’t taste as strong as you’d like, add another scoop of powder and mix. Repeat until it reaches your desired flavor. Garnish with green onion or parsley, if you like.

This dip is delicious because it has a bit of crunch from the dried onion bits in the soup mix. It’s perfect for dipping whatever you want, but goes especially well with potato chips (think sour cream and onion flavor, but straight from the source), or cut-up veggies like carrots, cucumber, bell pepper, and celery.
