Who knew that tortilla chips had their very own day?! I sure didn’t, but I’m happy I found out! Any reason to make a vegan Mexican dip recipe, is a worthy holiday in my book. ;)
But seriously, today is actually national tortilla chip day! I find it comforting to know that whenever you are in need of a celebration, rest assured there is always something out there to be celebrated.
To give my tortilla chips their proper recognition, I made Lightlife’s super easy Hot Mexican Dip with Smart Ground Original. Dip your celebratory tortilla chips, or wrap some up in a tortilla wrap if you feel like getting fancy. I ate it with chips on my first time around, but a wrap is on my menu for lunch tomorrow! Yum.
- 1 pkg Smart Ground Original
- 1 ½ tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 can fat-free refried beans
- 1 can diced green chilies
- ¾ cup taco sauce
- 2 cups vegan cheddar shreds
- 1 cup vegan sour cream
- 1/3 cup green onions
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
Crumble Smart Ground® Original into a large bowl. Add chili powder and onion powder. Set aside.
In a 13 X 9 X 2 baking dish coated with olive oil, layer the beans, Smart Ground Original mixture, green chilies, taco sauce, and 1 1/2 c cheese.
Cover and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until cheese melts and bubbles around the edges.
Cool for five minutes. Spread sour cream on top; sprinkle with green onions and remaining cheese. Serve with tortilla chips.
Have you had a tortilla chip yet today?
I’ve always wanted to make my own, it’s been on my to-do list for a while now, and I still have yet to try! Anyone have a homemade tortilla chip recipe they can share?
