Caramelized Onion and Garlic Chip Dip Recipe

Who's a fan of potato chips and dip??

I definitely am, and if you are too, today's recipe is for you! 

This Caramelized Onion and Garlic Dip is just short of amazing!! 

I had a jewelry party at my house yesterday, and served this and a couple other dips to the ladies that stopped by. 

But this dip by far, was my favorite. 

You know those french onion chip dips at the store? This is similar to that, but made at home and even more delicious! 

You can whip some up at any time without a trip to the grocery store!

Serve this amazing dip at your next party! It is a crowd pleaser! Caramelized Onion and Garlic Chip Dip from Hot Eats and Cool Reads!

I started by sauteing the onions and garlic in the new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Spread until they became caramelized. 

Caramelized onion and garlic is amazing, and the new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Spread makes it 40% fewer calories and 70% less saturated fat than butter, so better on the waistline. 

I'm all about lower calorie and fat alternatives these days. 

It also offers a fresh butter taste to add flavor to any meal, and can be used for spreading, topping, sautéing, cooking or baking. 

Even better, The new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® is made from real, simple ingredients you can recognize like a delicious blend of plant-based oils, purified water and a pinch of salt. 

It's the first spread from Unilever in the U.S. to be made from non-GMO sourced ingredients. 

I love when companies make their products from simple ingredients! 

I'm usually a 100% butter user, but after trying this new recipe, I will definitely be using I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! more at our house! 

I love that it's spreadable straight out of the refrigerator, so there's no need to wait for it to soften!

Serve this amazing dip at your next party! It is a crowd pleaser! Caramelized Onion and Garlic Chip Dip from Hot Eats and Cool Reads!
