“I'm not a fan of Emeril's, but I have to say he sometimes has good recipes! This was from his show and it's a fabulous dip for veggies or sturdy crackers or whatever. I make it frequently, it's a great dish to bring if you don't want to bring something that someone else might be bringing, adding more or less heat for individual tastes.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 12 cups chopped yellow onions
