Nacho dip recipe—supreme it or basic, both yummy!

Health tip: Buy nachos that are baked, such as Garden Fresh Gourmet chips, and unsalted. The unhealthy part of this meal lies in consuming too many chips.


  • cream cheese or sour cream (I prefer cream cheese for this dip)
  • salsa
  • cheddar cheese, shredded
  • lettuce, sliced (thin strips somehow taste yummier!)
  • tomato, diced
  • black olives
  • green onions (soooo good!)
  • a bag of nacho chips (I recommend a healthier, baked version, such as Garden Fresh Gourmet chips)


For a basic version, follow steps 1-3 (and of course #8, the best part!!). For a supreme delight, continue.

  1. Smooth cream cheese over a plate, covering the entire base.
  2. Spread a layer of salsa over cream cheese (quantity varies depending on your taste).
  3. Sprinkle a layer of cheddar cheese over salsa.
  4. Add a layer of lettuce strips.
  5. Sprinkle diced tomatoes over lettuce (yumm…).
  6. Sprinkle black olives over dip.
  7. Sprinkle green onions over dip.
  8. Grab a chip—and dip!

    1. Excellent point about the healthy nachos. Personally, I find baked nachos to be more delicious. Also, the purpose of adding salt to food is to add flavour. If you are going to be layering your nachos with toppings such as salsa and sour cream, you don’t need salt for flavour 🙂
