On Pinterest the other day, I saw a lovely pin for Skinny Taco Dip that gave me a mad craving for the treat. Having tried numerous grocery store taco dips full of calories and little flavor, I decided to attempt my own.
One problem: my husband hates cream cheese. Plus the cream cheese/ sour cream mixture is full of cholesterol. So I substituted nonfat Greek yogurt. For fun and to include more green & cooling foods in my life, I added a layer of fresh guacamole as well. And I must say...
As this is a party dip, it makes a lot.
Now you're craving taco dip, aren't you?
The results were worth the effort.
