Recipe: Caramelized Onion and Guinness Dip

Serves 16

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 large sweet onions, diced

1 cup cold Guinness

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

¼ teaspoon cayenne

1 pound extra-sharp Cheddar cheese (preferably Irish), cubed

Crackers, chips or bread, to serve

In a large skillet over medium, heat the olive oil. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and caramelized, about 20 minutes. If the onions begin to char before they caramelize, add a tablespoon or 2 of water. Set the onions aside and allow to cool.

Once the onions have cooled, in a food processor combine them, the Guinness, salt, pepper, cayenne and Cheddar. Pulse until combined and smooth. Serve with crackers, chips or bread. Also makes a great spread for a roast beef sandwich.
