Wheat Thins Taco Touchdown Dip

WHEAT THINS Taco Touchdown Dip made a huge hit at our last football party.  I honestly should have made a double batch of it, as it was that HUGE of a hit with all of our friends and family.  Not only is it a tasty treat, but it’s a healthier twist for snack foods.  It is loved not only by adults, but also by the kiddos.  Kid tested and approved!
