  • 2 small onions sweet onions (about 1 ½-2 cups)
  • 3 Tbsp butter salted
  • ¾ tsp sea salt fine grind
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 3 green onions
  • 8 ounces cream cheese


  • Add butter to the inner pot and turn the sear/sauté on high. While the butter melts, cut your onion into thin slices. I cut the slices in half, so they are about 2" in length.
  • Add the onions and the salt to the inner pot with the melted butter and continue to sauté until they just start to brown. This takes about 5 minutes.
  • When the onions just start to brown, put the Tendercrisp lid down and AirCrisp on 390° F for 5 minutes. The onions should be nice and brown and caramelized.
  • Chop up the green onions, both the green and the white part.
  • Add the sour cream, onion powder. Stir to combine. Add the green onions & cream cheese. Stir to combine and break up cream cheese.
  • Put the pressure lid on and turn the valve to vent. Select the slow cook function on high. The default setting is 4 hours, but you only need to cook for 1 hour. This will melt the cream cheese and allow all the flavors to combine and develop in the dip.
  • You can serve this dip warm or put it in the fridge to chill.
  • Enjoy!


You can speed up making this dip, by using sear/saute on medium-low to melt the cream cheese and combine the ingredients together. 
I found that slow cooking the dip did develop a better flavor, but it is not necessary.
