Eating “healthy” can be so hard! Everyone has a different idea of what eating healthy is. This Skinny Taco Dip is a lightened up version of traditional taco dip, like our Individual Seven Layer Dip Cups.
Even thought this taco dip is lower in calories and fat, it is still bursting with flavor!
You can alter this recipe to fit your tastes by using your favorite salsa and taco seasoning mix. You could also make your own taco seasoning mix if you prefer; we recommend this recipe.
healthy taco dip substitutions:
You could lighten up this Skinny Taco Dip even more if you substitute the sour cream for Greek yogurt. The flavor and consistency will be almost identical but you’ll save a few calories and get a little more protein in your diet.
You can also use fat free cheese to help cut down on fat.
Although this taco dip is healthier, we still love eating it with tortilla chips. If you are looking for a healthier option, we love these Gluten-Free Multigrain Chips.
TACO DIP INGREDIENTS:
Our friend, Kristin, at Yellow Bliss Road made an amazing Skinny Taco Dip Recipe that she tops with avocado and it looks absolutely heavenly!
As long as you follow the recipe below, you will have a great base for your taco dip, but you could easily add other toppings that you enjoy like green onion, red onion, green chiles, bell peppers, etc.
We love taco dips that have meat in them. You could easily add some grilled chicken or steak to this recipe!
