Place in an oven-safe ramekin or small, shallow baking dish. Sprinkle top with the other half of the crispy onions.

Raise heat to high; add garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, for another 3-4 minutes, or until onions are dark brown in parts. Deglaze the skillet with 3 Tbs water, scraping the bottom to loosen the browned bits.

¼ cupJust Mayo Chipotle
1 Tablespoon lime juice

If the dip is too stiff, add water 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches desired consistency.
