Onion Soup Dips

Not my original recipe, but still a classic. There are several variations. Dip sturdy chips or fresh, raw vegetables/crudities.

Basic Recipe for Onion Dip
1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix or even try Knorr Soup Mix
2 cups (16 oz.) sour cream or 1 1/2 cups sour cream and 1/2 cup mayonnaise

Here are some variations that are really good:
