Servings: 16 Tbsp
Prep Time: <20 min

2 Pieces Bacon, Cooked
1/3 Cup Onion, Red, Chopped
1/4 Cup Green Onion, Chopped
1 Cup Sour Cream
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Pepper, Black, Ground

In a medium saucepan, cook the bacon per package instructions. Remove the bacon to drain on a paper towel, and toss the chopped onions into the bacon drippings. Cook for about 10-12 minutes on medium heat, or until translucent and caramel in color. Remove to a paper towel to drain and slightly cool. In a medium bowl, mix the sour cream, salt, and pepper. Stir in the cooked red onions, followed by the green onions. Chop the bacon and fold into the dip. Refrigerate until serving.

Note - set aside some chopped green onions and chopped bacon to use as a garnish; for more bite and more tang, cook up some more onions with a couple sprinkles of cayenne pepper and stir in!
