Once, out side of the French Quarter and on a back road near Thibodaux I had dip similar to this at a Cajun shrimper bar. —thirschfeld

  • Serves 8
  • 16 ounces sour cream, save the non fat for another day
  • 1 1/2 cups yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • potato chips

In This Recipe
  1. Heat a saute pan over medium heat. Coat the bottom with just enough oil to cover. Add the onions, season the with salt and pepper. Cook them slowly until they are a rich brown and very tender. Add the stock and let it simmer away until it is reduced to about a tablespoon. Remove it from the heat and let it cool.
  2. Combine the cooled onion soup with the sour cream and stir to combine. Taste it and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Serve.
