Sick of me talking about Hatch Chiles yet? Don’t worry, they’ll be gone soon. But you can still adapt this recipe and my Hatch Chile Salsa recipe with Poblanos or Anaheims. This Hatch Chile Dip kills me. And it’s a little healthier than the normal dips you’ll find at all the big games. You need at least something slightly healthier to balance out all the other things you’re eating while watching your team. Using Neufchatel Cheese (like cream cheese but with fewer calories and fat and MORE protein) and Greek Yogurt, you’ll get more protein, something lacking in the standard sour cream or cream cheese based dips.
Tell yourself this after you’ve finished a bowl of it.
Hatch Chile Dip is great with homemade tortilla chips, on fish tacos, or even with veggies like bell peppers, carrots, or cucumbers. I might consider eating it with a spoon, if hard-pressed. On to the recipe!
- 1 block Neufatel Cheese, room temp
- 1 cup Greek Yogurt (full OR non-fat)
- 1/4 bunch cilantro
- 2 roasted Hatch Chiles
- 1 roasted jalapeno
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 dash cayenne
- Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend. If needed, add more Greek yogurt for consistency.
