Fresh Onion Dip
1 Vidalia (or other sweet) onion
2 T. chipotle puree
1/2 lb. chevre goat cheese
Salt and pepper
Cut onion in half and place skin side up in a well-oiled pie plate. Cover with
foil and roast in a 400°F. oven for about 20 minutes (until tender throughout).
Let cool and cut into half-inch pieces.
Split jalapeņo in half lengthwise and remove seeds and membrane. Mince finely.
In a food processor, blend all ingredients until smooth. Or mince onion by hand
and blend in a mixing bowl for a chunkier dip.
Correct seasoning with salt and pepper and serve.
