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!
How to make a healthy taco dip recipe
To make the creamy base of this dip, 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!
Add your vegetables, such as tomatoes, lettuce, green onion, black olives, even some avocado if you like.
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!
