Who doesn’t love chips and dip? I know I do! I especially love french onion dip with potato chips. The only problem with it was that I was purchasing the powdered soup mix to make it, but it kept expiring on me before i could use the whole package. The solution? Make it from scratch at home! I bet you have almost all the ingredients in your pantry now, maybe without the dehydrated onions (don’t worry, you’ll need them to try our amazing Onion Hamburger Patty recipe).

Now you can have an amazing french onion dip whenever you want in whatever quantity you want. It only takes about 5 minutes to make, but I recommend letting it rest for at least 25 minutes so the flavors can meld and the onions can soften.

French Onion Dip

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Resting: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Course: Appetizer, Snack
Servings: 1 Batch
Calories: 883kcal


  • 2 tbsp dehydrated onions
  • 1 tbsp beef bouillon granulated, low sodium
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp parsley flakes
  • 1/8 tsp celery seed
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • 1/8 tsp granulated garlic
  • 16 oz sour cream


  • Mix all ingredients well into a large bowl. Let sit in the refridgerator for at least 25 minutes to let the flavors settle and for the boullion to fully dissolve. Mix again before serving with your favorite potato chip. Enjoy!


If you can’t find granulated beef bouillon cubes or you have regular bouillon cubes at home, you can simply use 4 cubes and break them apart into granules.  You just want the pieces small enough that they dissolve in the sour cream.  I put the cubes in a zip lock bag and use a meat tenderizer to break them apart.
Since both potato chips and beef bouillon is so high in sodium, I would highly recommend one or both ingredients being the low sodium variety.  You can always add a little salt to the dip if necessary, but using both regular chips and regular bouillon will result in a dip that some may find too salty.
