Happy Cinco de Mayo | Let’s Taco Dip!

Cinco de Mayo has fallen on a Thursday. Perfect much?

We love Taco Thursday! We love the spices in our taco packets, we love the sour cream on top of our lettuce and tomatoes, we love it all- except sometimes we wish we could make it a little more healthy…

The amazing news! We recently whipped up this nutritious, delicious and protein packed 5 layer taco dip (cue the maracas!). With ingredients like tera’swhey® Simply Pure Plain Whey Protein, Greek yogurt, avocado, tomatoes, and so many more, this dip is the perfect way to eat healthy without losing the flavors you love.

Ingredients:

¼ cup lettuce (shredded), ¼ cup cheese, ¼ cup green onions, ¼ cup black olives, 3 medium/large avocados, 2 cups Greek yogurt *plain, 2 scoops (1oz)  tera’swhey® Simply Pure Plain Whey Protein, 5 tomatoes (use the flesh of the tomato, not the seeds), 1 small finely diced red onion, 1 cup corn or black beans (corn: use canned and drain it properly), ¼ cup fresh cilantro (or more to taste), 1 tbsp. parsley

Taco Seasoning: ½ tsp oregano, ¼ tsp pepper, 1 tbsp. chili powder, ½ tsp garlic salt, 1 pinch cayenne pepper, ¼ tsp seasoned salt (more if sweeter taste is desired), ½ tsp basil.

Dippers (optional): celery stalk, 2 red peppers, 2 yellow peppers.

Directions:

  1. Wash, dice and place vegetables in their own bowls
  2. Combine tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, parsley and set aside. (Dry the flesh of the tomato by placing on paper toweling until moisture is minimized.)
  3. Combine Greek yogurt, tera’swhey® Simply Pure Plain Whey Protein and taco seasoning. Stir until spices are equally distributed and texture is smooth.
  4. Mash the avocado (we used a potato masher) until you reach the desired consistency. Add a pinch of pepper.
  5. Set up individual canisters (or one pan) for dip to be placed in. Place in any order into the canisters. (We layered ours with corn, tomato/onion mixture, Greek yogurt/ tera’swhey® Simply Pure Plain Whey Protein mixture, avocado, and finally topped it off with lettuce, olives, and cheese and green onions to garnish.)
  6. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator.
  7. Enjoy!

For extra nutrition, swap out the chips for some vegetables! We tried red and yellow peppers and celery. SO GOOD.
