This is my new favorite, go-to creamy taco dip. It couldn’t be easier or tastier. You just use equal parts hummus and salsa and mix. It keeps really well in the refrigerator and can be used as a dip, sauce or dressing.
I love the combination of Trader Joes Hummus Dip and Trader Joes Organic Tomatillo Roasted Yellow Chili Salsa, but you could use any brand hummus and salsa.
Here I used it on tacos in place of cheese. I filled the tacos with my Crockpot Refried Beans Without The Refry
. I added corn to the beans, topped with the hummus/salsa dip, then topped that with Trader Joes broccoli slaw and carrot mix. This dinner was delicious and full of flavor and texture. The cheese was not missed at all!
Here I used it as a dressing to top a simple lunch salad I made for myself. Greens topped with beans, broken tortilla chips in place of croutons for some crunch, and topped with Creamy Salsa Dip as a dressing. So good!
I also use it as a dip for cut veggies and crackers.
This dip is a great way to get some protein due to the chickpeas in the hummus. It is also much better for you than the typical creamy dips that use sour cream, milk or cheese, and has much less fat than the typical salad dressing.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
