As a salute to the start of the NFL season, this week’s recipes will all be healthy alternatives to Game Day Snacks! These are great watching the game but, for those doing the 24 Day challenge, these can also fill in some of your daytime snacks.
Clean Eating Taco Dip
This Clean Eating Taco Dip is yet another game day recipe that promises to be the star of the show during the game or as your mid-afternoon snack.
The goal with this recipe was NOT to make a low-fat, lightened up version of the original. Instead, it was to make a really bright, fresh, clean version that would be just as delicious and not weigh you down; because we all know how we feel after eating the original version of taco dip!
Even the taco seasoning used to season the meat is made from scratch, so I can promise you that this taco dip is 100% Clean+Delicious.
If you prefer a vegetarian option, no problem, you can easily skip the turkey and add in another can of beans.
PREP TIME: 20 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 10 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME: 30 MINUTES
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- 1 lb. lean ground turkey
- 2 tbsp. taco seasoning
- 1 14-ounce jar of salsa
- 1 can black beans
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 cup organic sour cream
- 1 heart of romaine, shredded
- 1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
- 1 cup of black olives, sliced
- ½ cup jarred, sliced jalapenos
- 1 avocado, diced
Heat a large sauté pan over a medium-high heat. Add olive oil and ground turkey and cook for about 5 minutes, breaking up the meat, until the pink is gone and turkey is lightly browned.
Add in taco seasoning along with ¼ cup water and stir until the meat us completely coated in the seasoning. Shut off the heat and allow the turkey to cool down.
In the meantime, grab a large glass pan (I used a 9×13 Pyrex) and spread the salsa evenly over the bottom of the pan.
Next, layer the beans and onions and then gently spread the sour cream over the top. This can be a little messy, but if you go slowly, it’s totally doable.
Continue layering the lettuce, tomatoes, olives, jalapenos, and avocado.
Serve with some non-gmo blue corn chips and enjoy!
