Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat and add the onions. Cook until they soften and begin to brown (about 5 minutes). Add the oil, season with salt and continue cooking until the onions are very soft and caramelized (about 5 minutes). Stir in leeks and cook until softened (about 3 minutes). Transfer to a bowl to cool. When cooled, stir in the sour cream, shallots, chives, lemon juice, Worcestershire and cayenne. Season with salt to taste. Serve with the vegetables and pita chips.
