Expert Dip Tips

  • I didn’t add many onions into the mix, and I think it’s better this way!
  • I use a hand mixer. I find it blends thick things like cream cheese and butter better.
  • Soften butter by leaving it on the counter, unwrapped, for about 30 minutes before cooking. You can soften it on defrost in the microwave to speed things up, but be careful not to MELT the butter completely, or it will be mushy. It just needs to be softened enough to blend.
