Begin making the dip by melting butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Next, add the onions, salt, pepper, and cayenne.


Then, stirring occasionally, cook the onions until they are translucent. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the onions are golden.


Next, add half the water to the skillet and cook. Be sure to scrape up any browned bits until the water evaporates.


Then, let the onions cool to room temperature in another bowl.


Next, add sour cream to the onions and stir together. Season with salt and pepper before you refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes.
