Welcome, TisNew! You can use any vegetable on our approved foods list for a dipper. Some of my favorites are red, green & yellow pepper strips, jicama, raw green beans, snow pea pods, raw broccoli, raw cauliflower, grape tomatoes, and for Phase 2, carrot strips.

I just made this and it is YUMMY. I had a sample and dipped celery, cucumbers and mushrooms in it.

I didn't add the lettuce though as I was going to add it to a salad with Perdue Short Cuts chicken for lunch tomorrow. Instant Taco Salad!

Thanks for the recipe!

Looks awesome! Just be careful with the taco seasoning...most have all sorts of non-Phase 1-safe ingredients, like dextrose, cornstarch, sugar, potato starch, etc. They should be small amounts, so maybe it doesn't matter? If you're unsure, try using the spices from the Taco Bake recipe in whatever amounts please you. :D

I would also suggest 2 things:

more beans and less sour cream and cream cheese. Next time I am going to half them -- as well as the spices.
