I can’t get enough of Greek yogurt right now. It’s my own personal super food! Greek yogurt is a great source of protein and probiotics and is super filling. I made this dip today for my kids and hubby. I was so excited to see them digging in and lovin it. This recipes is a way healthier version of anything you will find in the grocery store. Trader Joe Pub Cheese is oh so good by itself, yet oh so sinful. But mixing it with Greek yogurt, salsa, and herbs makes the guilt go away…right? Well, I guess you’ll have to excuse the blue corn chips even though they are organic…. Crunchy fresh carrots or celery sticks are a superb substitute. This is a great recipe to share with your man. I swear the pub cheese and bacon totally hides the fact that there is Greek yogurt in it. My hubby said he preferred this dip over strait pub cheese, which he loves. Score!
