Lawson’s Chip Dip is a famous French onion dip from the Midwest. If you’re from that area of the county, you may be familiar with it. And if you are, it’s probably one of your favorite chip dips. If you’re not, just hang in there with me, because you will be soon!
Though I’m not from the Midwest, I’ve spent some time in Northeast Ohio. I’m also a bit of a dip junkie. Unfortunately, Lawson’s Chip Dip is only available in certain parts of the country, and New York isn’t one of those areas.
The good news, though, is that I have the perfect copycat recipe. I’m also willing to share 😉
How to Make Lawson’s Copycat Chip Dip
- 1 container of Philadelphia Chive and Onion Cream Cheese (7.5 oz.)
- 8 oz. sour cream
- 1 tablespoon Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix
Remove your cream cheese from the refrigerator and let sit until soft.
Combine the softened cream cheese the sour cream and one tablespoon of the dry ranch dressing mix. If you have a hand mixer, you can use this to whip the cream cheese and sour cream together. But if you don’t, that’s totally ok. You’ll just need to put a little extra elbow grease into it.
I recommend using a fork to combine your ingredients. It’s easier to break up the clumps and get a smoother consistency.
