Only Homemade Onion Dip Recipe You Need

Step away from the packet of onion soup -- you don't need it. I've got something even better for you. The sweetness of the caramelized onions along with the one-two punch of both onion powder and dried onions is perfectly balanced by the creamy sour cream and cream cheese. But I have to warn you, you may want to eat the entire bowl yourself, it is THAT good.
