Cheesy Portobello Mushroom Dip

One of my favourite brand of chips are the Way Better Snacks Corn Tortilla Chips. I am not an uber health nut, but if something tastes good, and is healthy, then I am all for it.  The taste of these tortilla chips are awesome and they disappear super fast in our household (the kids absolutely love them). They are made with sprouted grains which have a bunch of health benefits including increased nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants.

These chips are best with a nice dip and I love a bowl of warm dip on a cold fall/winter day. This dip recipe is a warm cheesy dip with caramelized onions and portobello mushrooms, which give the dip a sweet and earthly flavour. Ensure that the mushrooms are finely minced, which makes them easier for scooping. The combination of cream cheese and melted cheddar give the dip a creamy cheesy taste and goes perfectly with the onions and portobello mushrooms.
