Carmelized Onion Dip

Right in time for football season!  Tastes like french onion dip, but you know all of the ingredients and you can say it's homemade!  Plus, as usual, I've made it "healthier".  :)


2 Tbsp unsalted butter (I use margarine)
2 Medium onions, thinly sliced
Sea salt and pepper
1 8oz bar cream cheese, at room temperature (I use 1/3 less fat)
1 Cup sour cream (I use fat free - nobody can tell the difference!)
2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
Pita chips, for serving

1.  Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat.  Add the onions and a dash of salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally until deep golden brown, 35-40 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool.

2.  In a medium bowl, mix together the onions, cream cheese, sour cream, chives and salt and pepper.  Serve with chips!

Tip:  The dip can be made a day or two in advance; refrigerate and keep covered.
