Chips & ________

My son (5 yrs old) loves chips, but not salsa. I think salsa's OK, but am not wild about it. I love guacamole, but don't need the fat grams, and he doesn't like it any more. Does anyone have any suggestions for what else is yummy with chips?

  1. My favourite is salsa verde. Yummy and no fat. And not spicy, if you don't want it to be.

      1. how about hummus?

        or taramasalata - never seen it in the USA but you could make it if you can find a Greek grocery store that sells the jars of cod roe and then look for a recipe. My kids used to devour it at a young age and still like it, though I have yet to try to make it myself. In the UK all the supermarkets sell it ready made.

        1. re: smartie

          You can definitely get taramasalata in the US - premade and jarred is easier than find than the homemade stuff, though. I think even my local supermarket has it. Admittedly, it might be something the OP might not be able to get where she is, but I've seen in TX stores before, so it's not entirely impossible.

          But taramasalata with chips? I'm going to have to try that. What kind of chips are we talking about here?

        2. baba ganoush! especially homemade
          creamy dip made with low-fat sour cream or yogurt and whatever seasonings (I like to add a packet of ranch dressing mix or onion soup mix to a pint of low-fat sour cream as a special chips and dip while watching t.v. splurge. I do this maybe once a year since I don't keep the mix around, but I really should more often now that I think about it.)

          1. Tzatziki is a fave around here and if it's made with lowfat yogurt it's not so high in calories/fat. :)
