Skinny Cheeseburger Dip

Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s 2013. That just seems crazy. Today’s recipe is what I like to think of as a transitional recipe. Given most of us have likely indulged the last few weeks, it’s time to get back into a healthy eating routine. However it can be hard to do that when you vow to eat only lettuce for days. So this recipe can help you begin to make the transition. It tastes naughty and indulgent but is surprisingly light. Bake up some tortilla chips in the oven and enjoy this dip while easing back into better routines. Also after hearing requests from many of you, the special meal plan pricing is extended through today. That means you can have access to weekly meal plans for less than $2.10 a month. Just purchase sometime before midnight EST today.

      Thanks! I just decided to lower the price to $35 a year for now so you can still sign up for over 50% off.

    Do you grate the cheese or not?

      You could grate or cut it into smaller pieces. It will work either way, the bigger the pieces the longer it will take to melt in.

    Tried this for the Super Bowl – it satisfied our queso craving but we didn’t love it. Was really soupy and we had no cornstarch so added more cheese to thicken – that made the beef stick together more, highlighting the soupiness. Also, although I’m generally a big mustard fan, didn’t really enjoy the hit of mustard. I may have been liking more for a traditional queso than a cheeseburger dip but I’m going to keep looking on that front. But you wing recipe was outstanding!!!

    Hi, Kristen! I just have to tell you what a hit this dip was! I’ve made it a couple of times recently to share with family at various get-togethers, and it was so delicious! Really family-friendly, and of course I love that it’s much healthier than most of the usual dips you find on party buffets! It was for sure a great choice when we selected it for our post on Top 10 Hot Appetizer Dips! Great recipe – thanks!!!! :D
