French onion dip is tangy and savory. It requires only two ingredients and is made in under a minute making it the perfect chip dip!

These easy yet flavorful dip is party perfection. I like paring with a hearty potato chip such as ruffles or kettle chips. That salty, tangy, and savory combination hits the spot every time. Want a healthier dipping option? Try pairing with Veggie Cup Appetizers. You could also add EASY Hummus to the spread.

The two ingredients for french onion dip recipe

Made in Under a Minute + Variations

MIX. Mix together well and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.


  • Add some spice: you can easily kick the heat up a notch by adding red chili flakes or a splash of hot sauce.
  • If you’re not a fan of sour cream you can easily use plain geek yogurts, mayo or softened cream cheese. You can even mix and match to make a combination you love. 

For Homemade Dried Onion Seasoning use:

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

We love to make this homemade too since we always have these ingredients in the pantry. 😉
