I made too much sour cream and onion dip for a party and I don't want to waste it, but also I don't want to keep eating it with chips. More advanced cooks, is there any other way I can reuse (some of) it without somehow ruining the sour cream and making a disgusting gloppy mess? All I can think of is spreading it on toast, so other suggestions would be great. Ingredients listed inside. Thanks! [more inside]
