    Add the onions to a large skillet, in high heat, and stir for 15 minutes. Deglaze the pan with sherry vinegar and a bit of water, then lower the heat to medium-low and let it cook for 15 to 20 minutes more Now, this is optional but I highly recommend you to add 1/5 cup of white wine 3 minutes before turning the heat off, gives a very elegant taste to the dip.
