These were a nice snack and a good way to sneak vegetables into a meal for kids.

This recipe is good, but the dip is much better if you add a little onion and/or garlic powder. It's fools the kids--they think it's ranch!

this snack is really good for my kids.. thank you for sharing this.

Great recipe!  Everyone at dinner can prepare their meal how they like it.  We added the FH refried bean and salsa recipe and it was such a hit to have so many toppings/dips to choose from.  We used the extra toppings for rice bowls later in the week.  I do agree with another user that the yogurt dip is great with onion/garlic powder.

This was great. I added the Food Hero Refried Beans and the Quick Salsa on the side. My husband said it tasted like restaurant food! 

Have made the quesadilla and dip with several groups and for events.  People love the quesadillas with the Cilantro Yogurt Dip and are amazed at the simple ingredients in the dip.  Be warned, the dip recipe makes a lot, we find that 1/2 recipe is usually plenty.
