This is the entertaining season. Are you ready? Whether it is holiday gatherings with your family or football parties to watch your favorite team, you'll be needing a go-to dip for a satisfying appetizer or snack.
I've been making this caramelized onion dip for years and it is the hands-down favorite of all my dips. I try to keep it on hand in my fridge all the time.

I swear to you that if you bring this dip to a party it will be the first to go and you will be asked to bring it to every party you attend from now to eternity.
It's a good thing this is a pretty easy dip to make. The only real effort is in making the caramelized onions and that's only because it takes a little time and patience to get proper caramelization. You don't want to rush it. It takes about 45 minutes for the onions to develop their sugars and to reach a brown, yummy color.
If you make the full recipe you will have enough for a big party or enough to serve now and freeze for later. Yes, you can freeze this dip. I do it all the time, so I always have a dip ready to go during this busy time of year.
Don't make this dip the day you will be serving it. Trust me on this. Caramelized onion dip gets better as it sits in your fridge. You definitely want to make it the day before you need it. Three days before you need it will be even better! You also might want to skip the cayenne pepper. Don't do that either!
