Directions

Step 1
Heat pan with olive oil
Heat medium frying pan with oil on high until hot.
Step 2
Let onions get browned
Add diced yellow onions and spread out in the pan. Leave in the pan for 3 minutes without moving them. Don't worry, they will get a little dark, that's what you want. After 3 minutes, stir and cook for another minute letting the onions get mostly browned.
Step 3
Add Water
Add 1/4 cup of water to the onions and cook until water is absorbed.
Step 4
Add remaining water
Add remaining 1/4 cup of water and cook until the water is absorbed.
Step 5
Add green onions and cool
Remove from heat and stir in green onions. The onions will start to wilt. Let cool on stove for about 15 minutes.
Step 6
Mix together
In a large bowl, mix the sour cream, mayonnaise, Hidden Valley Ranch Dip, and Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce. Use 2 Tablespoons of the Tabasco Chipotle Pepper sauce if you don't want it too spicy, or up to 4 Tablespoons if you like it spicy.
Step 7
Add onion mixture
Add the onion mixture to the sour cream mixture and combine well.
Step 8
Serve with chips or veggies
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. This dip can be made a day in advance and is great with chips or vegetables.
