Taco dip is one of my husband’s love languages – and for good reason. Our family loves tacos like we love laughing, and this side dish or appetizer has all the components of tacos in dip form. It’s made with a cream cheese/greek yogurt base, is seasoned with taco seasoning and is topped with all of your favorite fresh taco toppings.

Most taco dips are made from a combination of cream cheese and sour cream, but using greek yogurt adds extra protein and no one is the wiser for the substitution. I prefer one made with whole milk for the thicker texture and consistency. This recipe calls for Cabot’s Plain Greek Yogurt.

Layers of flavor sit atop the creamy base, including fresh tomatoes, jalapeños, cilantro and Cabot’s Vermont Sharp Cheddar Cheese. It’s the perfect sharp, bold flavor to bring the dip together for your snacking delight. If you’re aiming to add a little more heat, their Habanero Cheddar or Pepper Jack would be great substitutions.

This recipe feeds 4-6, so feel free to double it for larger gatherings.

  • 8 oz. cream cheese at room temp
  • 8 oz. Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt 10%

  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup Cabot Vermont Cheddar cheese, shredded

Method:

  1. Using a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, blend together the first 3 ingredients for 2 minutes.
