Instead of Sour Cream, Use Greek Yogurt

Put down that tub of low-fat sour cream and go for the Greek. Tangy, thick low-fat yogurt works as a replacement for sour cream in nearly any recipe, with the added bonus of keeping stabilizers and other synthetic additives out of your diet. Whether it’s topping chili and your favorite Tex-Mex dishes or adding creamy richness to comfort foods like mashed potatoes, no one will notice the change-up.

Try it in:
Smashed Potatoes and Celery Root with Sour Cream 
Chipotle Chilaquiles
Crispy Potato Latkes
