taco dip of deliciousness


The rest of the world may need quality time or words of affirmation, but carbs are my love language.



However, on rare occasions (that is to say, when my mother asks if I’ve eaten any fruits or vegetables since the last leap year), I eat some hummus or eggs or yogurt or something to try to even out my addiction to carbohydrates.

So while eating refried beans and sour cream is more delicious/fun/enjoyable/good in general, I’ll acquiesce this time (don’t get used to this) and recommend a healthy version of taco dip sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

Step one: Mix 8 oz. plain Greek yogurt with 1 teaspoon salt-free taco seasoning.


Spread that onto a plate with a lip. Next layer on 8oz hummus. Now layer on 1/4 cup salsa.


Then add chopped tomato, sliced black olives, shredded romaine, and cheddar cheese.DSC_0286

The Greek yogurt can be a little runny, so don’t make this a day in advance. Unless you like hummus soup, and if you do, hey, who am I to judge?DSC_0287


Serve with carrots, cucumber slices, celery, pepper slices or . . . as is meet and right . . . tortilla chips.

Bon appacarbohydrates!

{Oh yeah, and if you think The Five Love Languages can help your marriage, I got news for you: This dip can do even more.}

  1. I made this tonight. It was really great. My 12-year-old picky eater daughter loved it. This may be bad parenting but I didn’t tell her that it was yogurt and hummus in the base. I implied instead that it was sour cream. Shame on me but it worked.
