It’s that time of year again. Football non-stop. Which means snacks non-stop. And if your teams are no longer in the playoffs, then game day really is all about the snacks!

Since game day food tends to be on the heavy side, why not switch up a favorite and make one of your snacks a bit healthier. That’s what we did with this lightened up ranch taco dip.

This taco dip doesn’t contain the heavy sour cream, refried beans, and loads of cheese that other taco dips contain. But don’t worry, there’s still loads of flavor. The creamy base of this dip is a combination of reduced fat cream cheese and Sabra’s Farmer’s Ranch Greek Yogurt Dip.

The yogurt dip adds a burst of flavor without going overboard in fat and calories, and the cream cheese adds a richness that you expect from a traditional taco dip.

Salsa, black beans, tomatoes, peppers, a smattering of diced avocado, and a bit of cheese (because you just have to have cheese!) add the flavors that you love in a taco dip.

Serve it alongside your favorite tortilla chips, and you have an irresistible snack that will be a hit at your next game day party!
