With its delicious tang and luxurious texture, Greek yogurt has been quite popular in the last several years. While some suggest that this dairy product has reached its peak as far as growth goes, it’s just as much of a breakfast and snack time star as it’s ever been.
Plenty of protein, calcium, and probiotics make it a choice that’s as healthy as it is delicious. While it’s great topped with fruit, nuts, or a drizzle of honey, it might be time to shake things up. Instead of going the sweet route, try it as a savory ingredient at the dinner table, and you’ll be delighted by the amount of flavor it adds. We’ve rounded up 6 great recipes to show you how it’s done.
1. White Chicken Enchilada Casserole
There are plenty of creamy enchilada recipes out there calling for sour cream. They’re delicious, but Ali Ebright decided to try subbing Greek yogurt to add a little bit more protein to the dish. “I can’t even taste the difference,” she says. The creamy dairy gets a boost from green chiles, chicken stock, and cumin. “It’s a simple sauce, but surprisingly full of flavor just beyond the typical creamy base,” Ebright says.
While most versions of this traditional dish can be kind of labor-intensive, this recipe is anything but. Ebright says it’s “easy to make by stacking the enchiladas into a casserole instead of rolling them up.” It’s also the perfect dish to make ahead of time. Just layer everything as the recipe says, then cover the dish, and pop it into the fridge for later in the week.
