Wagyu Beef Bacon, Artichoke, And Shallot Dip

96

This is not your average artichoke dip! The savory Fullblood Wagyu beef bacon adds another level of flavor to this creamy dip. Take your pan-fried pita crisps and immerse them in melted cheese, crispy bacon bits, artichokes, shallots, and a touch of garlic.

Who doesn't love having a good Caesar salad! However, having Caesar salad in restaurants is never a healthy choice. As, it is always loaded with excess fats and calories. I have prepared an entirely healthy homemade Caesar salad in a tortilla bowl that rivals that of any restaurant.

Toss with the crisp lettuce, drizzle with the guilt-free flavorful dressing and finally top with croutons and cheese for the perfect main course!
