GIRLS BITE OUT
There's much to talk about, so we'll get right to the good stuff. Read on for chip 'n dip madness (sans guilt, of course)!
It's Hip to Chip!
Guiltless Gourmet Tortilla Chips - Our top tortilla-chip pick! The full lineup rocks, and there's something for everyone, from Spicy Black Bean to zesty Chipotle to sodium-savvy Unsalted Yellow Corn. Each 1-oz. serving (about 18 chips) has only 120 calories, 2 - 3g fat, and 2g fiber (PointsPlus® value 3*). Pssst... Keep an eye out for the new packaging.
Special K Cracker Chips - These crispy crackers make great dip companions. There are five fun flavors to choose from, including Cheddar and Southwest Ranch. Chomp on 27 - 30 chips (WOW!) for 110 calories, 2.5 - 3g fat, and 3g fiber (PointsPlus® value 3*). If you haven't yet tried these, do it soon!
Kettle Brand Bakes Potato Chips - For authentic potato-chip taste and texture, these extra-crunchy crisps are a must-chew. Eat an ounce (about 20 chips) for 120 calories, 3 - 3.5g fat, and 2g fiber (PointsPlus® value 3*). The Sea Salt flavor is perfect for all sorts of dips. For a flavor bonanza, dip the Hickory Honey Barbeque chips in our Sweet Caramelized Onion Dip!
Popchips - This longtime-favorite chip brand keeps expanding its empire, covering both potato-chip AND tortilla-chip needs. The chips are nice and sturdy for excellent dipability. With the exception of the only-in-Canada Ketchup flavor, a 1-oz. serving (about 16 - 23 chips) has 120 - 130 calories, 4g fat, and <1 - 2g fiber (PointsPlus® value 3*). We can't even imagine how good the new Katy's Kettle Corn flavor would be with our So-Good Cinnamon-Vanilla Yogurt Dip!
DIY Chip Alert!
Crazy-Good Corn Chips - Get fancy and create your own tortilla chips! (OK, fine, making chips from tortillas isn't fancy. It is cool, though!)
Baked Kale - Don't let the name fool you... When baked at a high temp, kale becomes a crispy chip-like snack!
Delicious Dip Finds!
Wholly Salsa Guacamole & Spicy Pico - This brilliant creation fuses the decadence of guac with the guilt-free nature of pico de gallo (a.k.a. chunky salsa). A 2-tbsp. serving has just 35 calories and 2.5g fat, plus a gram of fiber (PointsPlus® value 1*). If you crave straight-up guacamole, keep portions in check with Wholly Guacamole 100 Cal Snack Packs, in Classic and Spicy!
Eat Well Enjoy Life Greek Yogurt Hummus - Ripping a page right out of the HG handbook, this company uses Greek yogurt in its hummus! The result is a line of spreads with 50 percent less fat than traditional hummus. Enjoy a 2-tbsp. serving for only 50 calories and 2.5 - 3g fat, plus 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 1*). Did we mention these dips are downright delicious? (We wouldn't be talking about them if they weren't!)
Recipe Roundup: A Dozen Dips!
Sweet Caramelized Onion Dip - Onion dip is well loved. This dip is especially loveable, due to its low calorie count and intergalactic flavor. (Read: It's out of this world.)
Fat-Free Plain Greek Yogurt + Ranch Dressing/Dip Seasoning Mix - This two-ingredient recipe is our cure for the common ranch dip. It's not crazy fattening or diet-y tasting!
Buff Chick Hot Wing Dip - Ain't no party like an HG party 'cuz an HG party's got this dip! (If it doesn't, people complain.)
Holy Moly Guacamole - Another Hungry Girl classic! Tell no one of the secret ingredient. They'll never guess...
Rockin' Roasted Corn Guac 'n Chips - This kicked-up spin on our original guac recipe has its very own chips. That rocks!
Amazing ATE-Layer Dip - We spun the original fatty fave into something super tasty yet much lighter. We are literally magicians. (Okay, that is not true.)
Gooey-Good Queso Dip 'n Chips - Your dreams of cheesy chips with meaty bits will come true when you make this spiced-up creation!
Turkey-rific Taco Bean Dip - Maximum flavor, minimum effort. That's why we love slow cookers!
Crazy-Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip - Our restaurant-style dip puts conventional versions to shame. Did you hear that? Shame on you, fatty dips!
Nice 'n Spicy Artichoke Dip - There's room in our hearts (and our mouths) for more than one artichoke dip. This one has got some heat!
Hungry, Hungry Artichoke Hummus - OK, we promise this is the last artichoke dip of the day. But can you blame us? They're all SO good.
Roasted Veggie Spreaddip - We put some of our favorite things in a blender, and can you guess what emerged? An incredibly creamy, bursting-with-flavor dip!
