Greek Yogurt Taco Dip

Greek Yogurt Taco Dip

It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means! Tacos! Well, in this case it’s Greek Yogurt Taco Dip, which is even better if you ask me. Especially because this version is a bit healthier with it’s yogurt base to add some protein. It’s full of flavourful southwestern spices and topped with lettuce, cheese, olives, and fresh diced tomatoes!

What do I need to make Greek Yogurt Taco Tip?

Here’s everything you’ll need to make a fabulous appetizer for your next summer gathering or Taco Tuesday party:

  • Organic Valley cream cheese (or Neufchatel cheese for a lower fat option) at room temperature
  • Plain Greek yogurt – I used full fat, but low-fat or fat-free would also work
  • Taco seasoning – Feel free to use a store bought blend or make your own! I included my recipe below.
  • Romaine lettuceĀ 
  • Colby jack cheese – Be sure to avoid pre-shredded cheeses which contain anticaking agents. Colby, pepper jack, or cheddar could also be used
  • Slicing tomatoes – Try to get local tomatoes if possible as they will have much more flavour!
  • Black olives

Transfer the mixture into a 9 inch pie plate or an 8×8 baking dish (ideally with tall sides). Spread the lettuce evenly on top, followed by cheese, tomatoes, and olives. Serve right away with tortilla chips. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple days, but it may get a bit watery from the lettuce and tomatoes.
