This is a great dip to take to any party.
1 1?4 cups finely chopped yellow sweet onions (Maya, Vidalia, etc)
1 garlic clove, minced
1?4 cup mayonnaise (Best Foods, Hellmann's, or Vegenaise)
1?4 cup plain yogurt or 1?4 cup sour cream
1?2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Tabasco sauce, to taste
1?8 teaspoon curry powder, to taste (optional, but oh so good!)
1?3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1?8 teaspoon smoked spanish paprika or 1?8 teaspoon dried ancho chile powder or 1?8 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 tablespoon chopped green onion, for garnish
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: In a bowl, mix together the onions, garlic, mayonnaise, yogurt or sour cream, cheddar, and Tabasco (and curry powder, if using).
Step 3: Spread into a lightly pan sprayed small-ish baking dish.
Step 4: Top with Parmesan and sprinkle with paprika to taste. (Ground ancho chile powder can be substituted for the paprika, for a little more kick. I prefer the ancho.).
Step 5: Serve hot or warm with crackers, bread, or raw veggie dippers.
Step 6: Makes about 6 servings. Can double the batch just fine.
