Every year, my husband and I go winter camping with his cousins. We try to bring a variety of “healthy” snacks, but the first thing out of our stash is generally the chips and dip. Like most people sensitive to high FODMAP foods, onions are a hard pass for me. But I'm a huge fan of onion-based chip dips. So, since starting the low FODMAP program, the struggle has been real!
If you're a fan of onion-based chip dips too, you're in luck! After a few not so delicious tries, I've cracked the code. You and your guests will love this Franken-FODMAPed chip dip. If chips are too greasy for you, this also tastes delicious with baby carrots, sliced bell peppers, or cherry tomatoes.

If you're in the elimination phase of the diet, you'll need to use a lactose-free sour cream. For my Canadian peeps, both PC and Gay Lea have lactose-free sour creams. If you want more information on using dairy during the Low FODMAP Diet, check out this article by Monash University.
Our other main ingredient is fresh chives. According to the Monash app, chives don't have any FODMAPs. This means you can add as many chives as you want without adding to your FODMAP load. So feel free to experiment to find the right flavour for you.
