Skinny Taco Dip recipe made with Greek Yogurt

First, yes, I must admit that we ate this healthy taco dip with unhealthy tortilla chips. But let’s be clear, life is about balance, right? And because it’s game day food, any calorie saving is a good thing. Agreed?

Typically when I make a taco dip, I use full fat cream cheese with full fat sour cream. Add in some taco seasoning, top it with ground beef, cheese and veggies and scoop it up with some tortilla chips.

Today’s recipe is much lighter, but equally delicious. And, it’s healthy!

Skinny Taco Dip recipe made with Greek Yogurt

I used plain Greek Yogurt with homemade taco seasoning. That’s it. I also topped this with some reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese. I don’t normally buy reduced fat cheese because it doesn’t melt. But today, since there is no melting, this lower fat cheese was perfect! You won’t miss the thick cheeses and sour cream in this recipe, I promise!

If you want, scoop this up with some baked tortilla chips or pita chips. This recipe below is enough for our family of 6, I just spread the dip in the bottom of a clear glass pie plate. You can easily multiply if you’re feeding a crowd.

Want to make this a meal? Top it with some cooked, taco seasoned, ground turkey! We may or may not have eaten this three times in January!

  1. I posted a dippy type recipe today. Yours is healthier though! I want it!! pinned!

  2. I always justified my tortilla chip overload with the fact that they are healthier that potato chips 🙂 Greek yogurt is so versatile, isn’t it?! Love it in this Mexican dip!

  3. Love that you made a party food favorite healthier. Looks so good!

  6. How perfect! I love taco dip like crazy! Now I have a skinny version. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love this Aimee! Greek yogurt is my go-to ingredient in so many things and I love that you’ve used it here. Adding some turkey and making it a meal sounds brilliant but this also looks so amazing on it’s own with some balanced, unhealthy tortilla chips. 😉 Pinning!

  8. Yum! We are having tacos tonight so this will be perfect! Another great recipe! xx

  9. YUM! And I totally agree about balance. Especially since I don’t mind crazy calorie foods, it’s definitely a perk if there is ANY calorie saving that doesn’t involve me eating less taco dip. 😉 Cuz I think we all know THAT isn’t going to happen any time soon…

  10. Love all the tomatoes in this healthy dip!! I would eat this with pita chips for a healthy after work snack. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

  11. I know exactly which unhealthy taco dips you speak of. I love ’em. But I love this healthier version even better. Great idea to use Greek yogurt. Pinning this and keeping it in mind for Super Bowl apps!

  12. This is a perfect recipe, my husband will eat this up!!

  13. My coder is trying to convince me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching
    to another platform. I have heard great things
    about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into
    it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    I made this tonight for a cookout, and it was the first thing gone! My only complaint is that it was a little runnier than I would have liked, so next time I’m going to try using a thicker Greek yogurt or adding a little bit of light cream cheese. Definitely a guilt-free winner, though!! Thanks for sharing your recipe 🙂
