Today, we’ll talk about some awesome veggie chips AND you get a new recipe inspired by these veggie chips that perfectly compliments them (or anything really!) It’s a Hot Veggie Dip, delicious dip made with fresh veggies, cream cheese, Swiss cheese…oh and it’s served warm! Yummo!
I usually don’t like to walk through the chip isle because of all the temptation. See, I’m a sucker for chips and if I walk through the isle, I know something will magically appear in my cart. It’s the weirdest thing…it’s like they know!
A few months ago, I noticed a new chip as I was walking through the grocery store. As with most new products, they placed it on the end cap of the isle and I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw it. “Veggie Chips from Green Giant? For real?! Oh, I must try it…”
I did and now I treat myself to some veggie chip goodness when I have a craving! I love chips and having a healthier version is great.
I tried two flavors of the Green Giant Veggie Chips: Barbecue Sweet Potato Chips and Garden Ranch Tortilla Chips. I’m so happy they make it two out of three of my favorite flavors, all that’s missing is the sour cream and onion flavor!
Sweet Potato Chips are made with real sweet potatoes, which is a big plus, they are packed with multigrain and they have 40% less fat than regular potato chips! Can I get a “woot-woot” for healthier and less fat?!
I absolutely LOVE tortilla chips. They are perfect for dips because they tend to be thicker and taste much better than potato chips (to me, at least.) The Green Giant veggie tortilla chips are made with real vegetables, whole grain and naturally flavored!
So naturally, when I got some of these veggie chips, I needed to make a veggie dip to go with it! Personally, I like hot dips much better than cold dips, so that’s where my mind goes first. I was making this up as I went and randomly pulled stuff from the fridge. Hubby always tells me that my best recipes are the ones that I don’t plan but just do! He is so right because this was DELISH! I’m just happy that I remembered to write it down as I went because I often forget to do that.
Hot Veggie Dip with Veggie Chips
- 8 oz neufchatel cheese you will find it next to cream cheese at the store, softened
- 1 cup of shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 heaping tbs of mayo
- 1 heaping tbs of sour cream
- 1 tsp fresh dill weed
- salt pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup finely chopped broccoli

- 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
- oil to saute the veggies
- 2 tbs Swiss cheese for topping
- Preheat the oven to 350 and lightly grease an oven-safe baking dish.
- Saute all the veggie until they reach your desired level of doneness (I prefer them a little crunchy but some may like it soft.) Add Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper flakes, mix well and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine cheeses, mayo, sour cream, dill weed, salt and pepper. Mix very well.
- Mix in the veggies and transfer into the baking dish. Spread evenly and top it off with the 2 tbs of Swiss cheese.

Dips and football season go hand-in-hand, this sounds great! I’ve bookmarked it to try it:@)
Thank you so much!
I am definitely trying this soon! Veggies are always I fight with my son, but this might be a way to sneak some in and get him used to eating them a little more. Thank you so much for sharing this on the Less Laundry, More Linking party. I appreciate your support so much.
Totally, worked on my husband!! Thanks, Brenna!
Catherine @ Happily Ever Crafter says
That sounds really good! I’m such a sucker for chips too. I *try* to get “healthy” chips if I get any at all but it’s always a temptation. I’ll have to keep an eye out for these new ones!
By the way, I found my way here through the Less Laundry, More Linking party! 🙂
Thank you so much, Catherine!
This is soooooooooooo “dangerous” for a vegetarian like myself – I’d eat everything by myself
It looks fantastic to me
It’s really good 🙂 Might be worth licking out the plate!
Thank you, Winnie!
