I think it's the beefy flavor plus the salt. To me, it's comparable to using dehydrated onion to fresh. The dehyd's have a little flavor that you can't reproduce in fresh onions.

That's what we buy ... YUM! I love it with Lay's Rippled chips. Dip one in and let it soak in a little so it's a little crunchy and a little soft. Mmmmm... The Lipton's mixed with sour cream rocks just as well though . Basketball playoffs are upon us, might just have to whip some of this up to go with other finger foods this week ...

I enjoyed some last night, while watching late-night tv..... and it's now gone!

I make mine with the soup mix and sour cream, also.

A little kindness goes a long way.

Springtime garlic chives, fresh from the garden, mixed with sour cream and a little Hellman's mayo makes a pretty nice substitute for the soup mix dip.

Sometimes when you grow up with something, you crave it when you get older, just a little, once in a while.
I wanted to make some and had no french onion soup mix, so I chopped onions very small and mixed in some marmite, and it is almost PERFECT!

I met a guy once that liked that french onion soup mix added to half sour cream and half cream cheese. That was good as well with chips.

Anyone else? ~Bliss
My husband still does that. It's OK, but I like the one from the carton much better.
If you can find Lipton's (no substitute) Ranch Dressing mix, it makes a delicious dip!
We get by with a little help from our friends

I have never ever liked anything else but the french onion soup package in sour cream. It's a tiny bit on the salty side so I always use more sour cream than the box says to, and it's delicious....I may just have to go out and get myself some more now!

I love french onion soup mix dip.
Recently I've been making another lazy onion dip. It's baked, so I guess not as lazy but still.
1 cup of finely diced onions
1 cup of mayo
1 cup of shredded cheese ,a strong cheddar or swiss works well.
Mix together. Spoon evenly into pie plate . Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until bubbly and brown on top.

Soo good. Even better when its leftover and cold.

i also make it with lipton french onion soup mix and sour cream BUT i cook a small amount of bacon drain it very well and grind it in the food processor then add it to the dip. people ask me why does mine taste different and i just smile to myself and say i can't imagine. i like to dip original plain wise chips, wise sour cream and onion chips and doritos.
