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

- 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.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Serve warm!
Some more Dip recipes from me:
I made this dip Saturday for my potluck party. It was an instant hit, and it was wiped clean in no time at all! I substituted a hot sauce for the Worcestershire sauce (as we like our food really spicy). Served it with crackers (as they were handy). Thanks for the recipe.
I’m so happy that everyone loved it! Thank you 🙂

Hello! This looks delish!
Thanks so much, Melissa 🙂
The chips do look fantastic…but this dip and me could be alone with a spoon and I’d be just fine. YUMMERS, Lyuba!
Oh yes….there will be some licking of the bowl 🙂
Thank you, Kristi!

Liz Fourez says
I love those chips!! And this dip looks perfect to go along with them!
Thank you so much, Liz!
I was just asked to make dip for a bridal shower next month. I had asked, “Would you like a veggie dip or a chip dip?”
The answer was, “something to dip chips in!” This recipe is the best of both worlds, and the one I am making for the shower. Thank you for sharing, I am so glad you wrote it down. (I never would have been able to duplicate it if I didn’t write things down!)
This is great! Sure is best of both worlds! Hope everyone enjoys it 🙂
