Taco Dip {low-fat}

Recently, Ryan and I graduated from Dave Ramsey’s  Financial Peace University. FPU is a 13 week course to assist you with learning about how to get out of debt, and manage your money correctly (both through saving and investments).  Our group had a potluck to celebrate, and boy was I in a pickle. You see, I don’t participate in potlucks. I never know what to make, and just thinking about having to bring something makes me nervous. Lucky for me, I saw this recipe for taco dip, and felt it was something everybody would like.

This recipe really can’t get any more easy. Mix a few things, sprinkle on a few toppings, and done. Let me tell you, I went home with nothing left in my 9x 13 pan. It was a hit! Best of all, it’s low-fat! I even had some and loved it, and I’m not a huge chip/dip fan. If you’re looking for a great dip for gatherings, a potluck, or just watching a game at your house, this is definitely one to try!
