Easy Onion Dip (Lipton soup style)

Easy Onion Dip (Lipton soup style)

If you have sour cream and some fairly standard spices you can whip up a tasty onion dip in less than 60 seconds.  Dips are a great way to entice little ones to eat veggies and make quick impromptu appetizers when unexpected company stops by.  This recipe (minus the sour cream) can even be made and stored in bulk so you always have some on hand.  Just add 2 Tablespoons of the spice mixture per cup of sour cream and you’re in business!

Onion Dip Mix


  • 1 Tablespoon dried minced onions
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (8oz) sour cream


  • This recipe makes a good, basic onion dip.  It’s also great with a teaspoon of chives, parsley or cilantro.  Other good additions include chili powder, hot sauce, horseradish, bacon crumbles, blue cheese, etc.
  • If you make this in bulk and store it (which I recommend) be aware that onion powder tends to clump.  Store it like other spices in a tightly covered container and expect to give it a good shake before using.
