1 (15 ounce)
jar Tostitos® Creamy Spinach Dip
1 bag
Tostitos® Hint of Lime Chips
12 ounce
roasted red peppers, strained and dried between paper towels
2 (14 ounce) cans
of chickpeas, strained and rinsed
8 ounce
grated cheddar cheese
½ cup
2 pounds
bacon, cooked and crumbled
onion, sliced thinly
bell peppers (one red, one orange, one yellow)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the spinach dip, roasted red peppers, chickpeas and cheese in a food processor and blend until smooth. If mixture is solid enough to form, move on to the next step. If not, add a few breadcrumbs, pulse, and repeat until the mixture will hold its shape.
  3. Lay bacon on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until bacon is almost blackened. Remove from oven, cool, and crumble into flakes.
  4. Form the chickpea mixture into a dragon shape by starting with a mound for the body in the center of a plate, and then forming a winding tail on one end and a thick head on the other end. Using a clean paper towel, wipe the plate around the dragon to define the edges.
  5. Push bacon into the sides of the dragon to form scales, continuing until the dragon is covered. Wipe around the dragon again to remove excess bacon and define edges.
  6. Add Tostitos chips to form spikes and wings. Tostitos Tip: Break chips to give the spikes different proportions.
  7. Use bell pepper and onion to form face, feet, horns and flames.
