Taste of Home Dip Recipe
I know it's kinda corny, because it's so simple, but it reminds me of growing up in California, when we didn't have a lot of money. Sometimes it's the simple pleasures that mean the most. My mom was divorced and with two little girls in the late 60's when we moved to California from Maine. Being a divorced mom was unheard of back then and she was not looked upon kindly when it came to finding work. She did what she could, but we still ended up on welfare. Our big treat was when she'd surprise us with a bag of Lays Barbecue chips (and sometimes Original) and the makings for onion dip:
16 ounces of sour cream or softened cream cheese
A packet of Lipton onion soup mix
Fresh chives chopped
Mix well in a bowl, then chill for at least one hour (although we usually couldn't wait that long, ha ha).
Enjoy with chips (or whatever you like to dip - these days, carrots, celery and other veggies are my fave in addition to the chips)
This brought back such memories, I went to the Lays web site and was surprised to see they have so many different flavors from the Original and Barbecue ones! Go to http://www.fritolay.com/lays/regionally-inspired-flavors.html and see for yourself. I just may have to come up with some new dip recipes. I think I'm going to have to try the Lays Cajun Herb & Spice and Honey Mustard flavored chips!
Frito-Lay, I hate you...just kidding, but now I am craving my homemade onion dip and your chips!
Now, for my friends, fans and followers, let me know if you read this the whole way through and send me an email or reply to this post with the word: LAYS - one of you will win a package of Frito-Lays chips from me! Yes, really!!!!!
