So the kind folks who work with Frito Lay's, asked if I'd like to come up with two healthier dip recipes and pair them with their chips! Chip and dips? Sure I'm in! I thought and thought and though, and decided on twisting one of my favorite dips up a little, it's super simple. I made Chive and Garlic Sour Cream Dip which also has cottage cheese in it! Now don't knock it till you try it! Even my kids loved this dip with Lay’s Original potato chips. I also made a Hot Chicken Artichoke Jalapeño Dip to serve with Tostitos Scoops! tortilla chips. Mmm, it's great nice and hot and all cheesy out of the oven. That was my favorite! Using low fat or fat free ingredients will help cut the calories but won't sacrifice flavor and no one knew otherwise! Perfect for those parties coming up.
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, 1/2 C set aside
2 (8-ounce) blocks neufchatel 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded jack cheese, set aside 1/4 C.
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
3 TBL jarred Jalapeños, diced and seeded for less heat
2 roasted chicken breasts, diced
Tostitos Scoops! tortilla chips

In a large bowl (or mixer bowl) combine well, 1 1/2 cups mozzarella, cream cheese, 3/4 cups jack cheese, sour cream, 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Stir in the garlic, artichoke hearts, jalapenos and chicken. Pour mixture into a grease pie dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella, 1/4 cup jack cheese and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Serve hot with Tostitos Scoops! tortilla chips.
