Whether it be at a football game, family get-together, tailgating, or just to snack on at home, French onion dip with chips is always a favorite to indulge in.

French onion dip is always, always a crowd pleaser. 

Unfortunately, most store-bought dips — including the beloved onion dip in the blue packet — contain MSG, dextrose, the questionable “spices” ingredient, and GMOs.

For someone who is consciously trying to eat better and eliminate processed ingredients, this could prove to be an issue — especially when even organic versions contain maltodextrin.

Thankfully, you don’t have to sacrifice quality of ingredients and taste in order to enjoy your favorite dip!

This homemade dip recipe is bursting with true, authentic flavor. The kind you get when using fresh spices.

It’s much prettier too; the added turmeric turns the dip a light yellow hue with green flecks of parsley and celery seed.

You can whip up a batch yourself with the recipe below.

Here’s to better ingredients and eating real food flavors that taste a million times better than store-bought!

    Try substituting crushed garlic and finely grated onions for powders. Itʻs amazing what a difference in makes in the richness of the taste.
