i have good news, guys.

the packers are in the playoffs this season!

i am 100% certain it is because of our cheese head christmas tree topper.

i made a dip for new year’s eve that would actually be PERFECT for playoff season, so i have to share it with you. because, you know, football watching is all about the food and not the actual game, right? right. (side note.. i actually DO like watching football now days. i know, who am i??)



go ahead and make this dip for your football fans or for any other occasion that requires delicious dip consumption. or, heck, just make it for yourself and devour it bit by bit as you see fit. i won’t report you to the food police. plus, this spicy six layer dip is completely healthy! yep, that’s right—six layers of clean eating goodness. you can deliver the dip to your mouth any way you wish. the tastiest option is tortilla chips, the healthiest option would obviously be veggies, but may i suggest you meet tastiest and healthiest in the middle with trader joe’s baked blue corn chips? they are fantastic and i highly recommend them!

i recently received some chobani greek yogurt as part of their current campaign, #justaddgood. a bit about the campaign from chobani’s blog:

With all of the excitement happening around our new products and our new plant in Idaho, it’s only fitting that we call attention to the most recent recipes we’ve been churning out in the kitchen. If you’ve seen us use the hashtag #justaddgood around the interwebz, you might have found yourself wondering what we’ve got up our sleeve. Well, look no further! Hop on over to Chobani Kitchen to drool over recipes like Pumpkin Risotto, Pineapple Coconut Scones, and Chocolate Chili Mousse.

To us, just add good is more than a campaign and bigger than substituting Greek yogurt. It’s about adding creativity and fun to your recipes with real, honest ingredients. So go on, poke around Chobani Kitchen and try out some of the recipes. Or share what you come up with on your own! Either way, join the conversation by utilizing #justaddgood.

as part of the campaign, chobani has released a new conversion chart to help you make healthy kitchen ingredient swaps! now you can use this handy chart to cut calories and just add good to your recipes!


traditional mexican layer dip has sour cream, but this recipe swaps the sour cream out and adds plain nonfat chobani in. the rest of the ingredients are healthy and wholesome—like i said, a healthier dip for your chip! or whatever vehicle you choose.

Oh goodness.

I’m going to have to downsize this recipe for one – I don’t know if I’d have any self control if there was any more than that!

The dip looks great! Whoo-hoo, GO Pack go!!! Let’s hope they’ve got it in for the Vikings this Saturday! I’ll be rooting for my fave, #52 (matthews <3 – what a beast). :)

That tree is hysterical.
And I really like that chobani chart. I will save that for sure. I find that chobani tastes more like whole fat sour cream than low fat sour cream does.

This looks so good. Now I just need to be invited to a football party so I can make it!

Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries January 2, 2013 at 9:58 pm

I love, love, LOVE layered mexican dips! I do have a bit of a problem with self control with them… I just can never get enough.

I knew about the sour cream substitution but not the others! And this dip looks like the bombdotcom!

Erica January 3, 2013 at 6:15 am

owww! Totally trying this. Sounds so delicious! Yayy football- go Pats!

I love layer dip. I still don’t love watching NFL, but I’m happy that the Skins made the playoffs. Maybe I’ll make this for the Sooner’s bowl game tomorrow!

LOVE ME SOME CHOBANI! and LOVE ME SOME PACKERS! (<- well, I kind of fake that last fact bc I live in WI. You kind of just have to cheer for them here :)

Ooooh fun! I LOVE how Chobani did that conversion chart. Genius.

Cecilia January 3, 2013 at 11:18 am

Definitely plan to try this!

I love layer dip.

My mom’s is 7, guac, beans, sour cream/yogurt, cheese, tomatoes, green onion dip, and salsa. She mixed the yogurt/sour cream and salsa together before spreading. In the past, i’ve made my own french onion dip, so it has less junk in it and is better for you.

How do you think this would be if you baked it for a bit? Hot gooey cheese mexican dip…….yummm

Janetha January 3, 2013 at 7:38 pm

YUM.. amazing idea!

BroccoliHut January 3, 2013 at 6:05 pm

That CHO substitution is SO smart! My mom used to make this fantastic pizza dip for NYE every year that had cream cheese in it…I wonder if I could lighten it up with some Greek yogurt…You’ve inspired me!
