Can’t be replicated! I was able to find Real Seal approved sour cream and it made the perfect base for this Caramelized Onion Dip…SO YUM!

You had me at the picture of the potato chips. I adore potato chips. I don't keep them in my house because I would eat them all the time! Then you added bacon and this dip is over the top! Thanks for sharing (I think). Wishes for tasty dishes, Linda
    Becky Hardin
