With football season just a few weeks away, it’s time to bust out the dip recipes and chips for some game day eats. This skinny queso dip recipe is a favorite when you’re looking for a homemade version of that silky, smooth Velveeta queso dip that so many of us know and love.
To make this easy queso dip “skinny,” you’ll simply need to swap out a few of the traditional Velveeta cheese dip ingredients for healthier options. One such substitution includes using coconut milk instead of heavy cream.
Coconut milk tends to have the thick, rich quality of heavy cream without as much fat. In this queso recipe, you can’t even notice the difference when tasting the cheese dip even though the coconut milk is much healthier.
We also use Greek yogurt in this skinny queso dip recipe to help thicken up the dip and give it that creamy consistency. Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein and much leaner than alternatives like sour cream.
We suggest pairing this delicious cheese dip recipe with a bag of healthy tortilla chips, but we honestly wouldn’t judge you if you just wanted to eat this up with a spoon!
