Chips, Salsa, and Protein - Yes, Protein

I LOVE chips and salsa, but I LOOOOOVE this combination. Why is this a killer combo?

Do you ever open a jar of salsa and a bag of chips, and then... crunch... crunch... the bag of chips is gone?!

Adding Greek yogurt or cottage cheese to the mix provides protein and makes the salsa taste better (Well, I think so). You will feel full quicker, get more protein, and hopefully, eat less chips. Give it a try :-)
