When two people get married, each person brings with them the complexities and idiosyncrasies of their friends and family. The good, the bad, the OMGEEE what have I signed myself up for.
Potential pros: A vacation home with a view, that *anyone* in the family is free to use. An aunt that’s a really good criminal defense lawyer, because boo-boos happen. A cousin that’s a well-renowned chef, who also loves to invite family over to test out new recipes. Or maybe sisters who’s a fantastic hair stylist, and offers free highlights over her kitchen sink on the weekends.
My new brother-in-law Matt? He brought his mama’s chip dip. And if you think that’s insignificant – well you’ve never tried this dip.

You guys, it’s the stuff you want to bath yourself in. The snack you want to make a triple batch of, not to share with friends or anything, but more like so you can sit on your sofa and eat it alone when nobody is looking.
Over the past year, I’ve made an embarrassing amount of this crave-worthy concoction. Parties, get-togethers, ding-dong ditching on pregnant friends doorsteps, you name it. And since Mama C doesn’t have a blog, I’ve been given permission to do the world a favor and share the magic (with a few personal culinary tweaks).
I present to you:
- 1/8 tsp. Ground black pepper
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 1/4 cup Evaporated Milk
- 1/3 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
- 8 oz. Cream cheese (at room temperature)
- 1 tsp. Grated onion pulp
- Mix together all ingredients on high with an electric blender until smooth.
- Consume immediately or refrigerate.
*I grate my onion on this microplane. It gives the onion the perfect “pulp” texture.
* If onion flavor is too strong, add a bit more salt.
Serve with your favorite potato chip or just shove it in your face with a spoon. This is a safe place, no judging.
