Football snacking and New Year's stuff

Happy New Year!  I'm so excited for this year!  Mr. Beachy and I are dropping some pounds and gearing up for our anniversary trip to St. Lucia in the spring!  We've never even had passports before so this is really exciting for us. 

We had an early New Year's party last Thursday and stayed up way too late (5:00!!!) so on New Year's Eve we were in bed by 9:30!  :) 

I brought this dip to our early party and everyone loved it.  It is a lightened up version of a seven layer dip and is absolutely delicious!

Taco Dip

8 oz 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese, softened
8 oz light sour cream
16 oz salsa
packet of taco seasoning
3 chopped tomatoes
2% reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
shredded lettuce
black olives
sliced green onions

Mix the first 4 ingredients well.  A hand mixer works well for this step.  Layer lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, olives and onions.  Serve with tortilla chips. 

It's so easy and super tasty.  I highly recommend it for any football party you have coming up.
