Whether it’s decorating the tree together, busting out a holiday tune, or building snowmen in your front yard, the holidays are full of traditions, and recipes are no exception.  Now you might not consider nacho dip to be at the top of that list, but in my family is a sure fire sign that everyone’s home.

During the holidays
my mother always makes cheesecakes, and so there’s always a plethora of cream
cheese around. And when we are all hanging out watching a movie we like to have
some yummy things to munch on, and this recipe is so easy that it can be
whipped up in as little as ten minutes.

My younger brother in
particular loves this dip; so much that you can bet that he’ll request it if
it’s not already prepared in the fridge. But because this recipe makes a pretty
large serving (I made a mini version for this post) I rarely make it unless everyone is around to eat it. 

Traditionally this
dip is served with nacho chips, so I like to mix it up with fresh veggies, and
some organic blue corn chips, or reduced salt kettle chips (my personal fav) to make it a little bit healthier. So with some fresh cut
tomatoes, and green peppers this recipe is a-okay with me (and even little
brother approved) for the holiday season.

Festive Layered Nacho Dip 
1 (250g) container of cream cheese (I use the low fat one)
1/2 cup sour cream (you could also use plain Greek yogurt here)
1 cup of salsa
2 cups mozzarella/cheddar mix shredded cheese (again I use the low fat)
2 tomatoes chopped. 
1/2 green pepper chopped.
Nacho chips, potato chips, crackers or veggies to serve.  

Mix first 3 ingredients until well blended; spread onto plate or clear oven/casserole dish.
Top with layers of all remaining ingredients.
Refrigerate until ready to serve. I like to give it at least an hour, as I find the flavors tend to combine a lot better. 
Serve with veggies, chips and/or crackers.
