Probably tastes great but I would not eat this Chourico, mayo and cream cheese. Not exactly the healthiest dip!

I made this for a get together with a group of non Portuguese people…I brought tortilla chips to scoop up the deliciousness! I swear, it was such a hit that I bet if I had supplied spoons, people would have been eating it by the spoonful! Lol

Sorry, cannot go along with this recipe. Caramelizing the onion is great, but these delicate herb flavors for this long a time will dramatically change (ruin) their flavor. Add these for a few minutes AFTER the onions have caramelized. Just MHO and experience.
