Fast & Easy Recipe For Spicy Onion and Tomato Chip Dip

Killer App: Spicy Onion and Tomato Dip

This weekend, I'll be spending Labor Day at a friend's barbecue bash. She's already got the barbecue and its essential accoutrements entirely covered, so I've been racking my brain to come up with an appropriate contribution. I had no idea what that was going to be — until I had a lightbulb moment for the perfect pièce de résistance.Since I won't be spending the holiday with family, I figure I'll bring a bit of my family to the festivities. As a child, I hardly liked spicy food, but from the first time I watched my mother whip together this slightly cooling, slightly fiery cream dip, I was hooked. It's one part Southern, one part retro, and 10 parts addictive, whether served with Ruffles, saltines, or celery sticks. See the two-second recipe when you keep reading.

I made this but I put it on a burger and it was AWESOME. My husband and I ate the leftovers the next day with pita and it was still AWESOME.

Good question -- I often use Romas, or a less seedy variety, but if you're cutting open and extra-juicy tomato, you might take the time to seed it, too, if it bothers you.

To the above poster: I'm pretty sure you leave the tomatoes whole and then dice them. They'd let you know in the recipe if there was a need to seed them. Besides, it probably wouldn't make a terrible lot of a difference.
