Do you love creamy dips, but hate using mayo, sour cream or other high-calorie cream ingredients? This recipe uses a great alternative to mayo in sauces, dips, and dressings. Using fat-free Greek yogurt is a perfect substitute because it provides the creamy texture, but also gives a tangy, sour flavor that is packed with protein.
Shrimp is hearty and full of flavor and provides texture to the dip. The heat in the dip creates an additional dimension to the whole experience. This dip tastes great with crostini, sliced or cut veggies, whole grain crackers or can even be spread on a sandwich.
Serve this unique and delightful dip at your next party and everyone will be sure to compliment the chef.
½ cup fat-free Greek yogurt
4 oz Neufchatel cheese
2 chunks onion, approximately ¼ cup
1 jalapeno pepper, cored and seeded*
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
½ tsp kosher salt
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp paprika
¼ tsp ground black pepper
½ lb shrimp, peeled, deveined and steamed
Add all ingredients except shrimp to jar and secure lid. Press Pulse 4–6 times in order to chop jalapeno and onion. Remove lid and use spatula to scrape food back into center of jar. Add shrimp to jar and secure lid. Press Pulse 3–5 times until desired consistency is reached.
*To kick up the heat of this dip, reserve some of the seeds and veins from the jalapenos and add before blending.
For tomato cups, slice off ½” from top of each vine-ripened tomato. With small spoon, gently scoop out and discard pulp to create hollow shell. Turn tomatoes upside down on large plate lined with paper towel to drain tomatoes while preparing the dip. Once drained, fill tomato cups with dip.
