When I eat dip, I use a LOT of it. Seriously – my veggies, chips or whatever I’m dipping with have to come out with massive globs of the dip on them. That’s just how I roll. But most dips out there, even the low calorie ones, still end up really racking in the Weight Watchers Points with the way I eat them. So, after a bit of experimentation in the kitchen I came out with a delicious and easy Caramelized Onion Dip Recipe that is not only rich and flavorful – it’s just 2 Points for a half cup! I was in heaven. Caramelizing the onions adds such a nice flavor and texture to the dip. And using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream really helps keep the fat/calorie count low and gives some extra protein and probiotics. This onion dip recipe will be appearing on my Weight Watchers Super Bowl Recipes list for sure! And I’ll be making it regularly for some guilt free late night munching.
