Skinny Southwest Chicken Appetizer recipe - Greek Yogurt makes this recipe just as healthy as it is delicious!

Remember the movie “Mermaids?” The mom only had one cookbook and it was for finger foods, so that’s all she knew how to cook – everything was on a stick! I could totally live my life eating like that…

It’s definitely doesn’t taste healthy, but it is!

There are so many different ways you could enjoy this dish: 

Serve as a dip with tortilla chips or pita crisps.

Add some lettuce and wrap in a tortilla.

Add 1 cup of cooked whole wheat pasta and make it a meal (be sure to double the amount of yogurt and seasonings or it will be quite dry).

Serve on a bed of lettuce or in a pita pocket for a lo-carb lunch.

Eat it as is!

    I made these for an app at a party and it was so yummy! I omitted the chicken and served it as a side dish as opposed to a dip. It’s so healthy yet I could eat the whole thing myself! It would be great for lunches too
