Skotidakis Jalapeno Greek Yogurt Dip

I can’t get enough of this copycat Skotidakis Jalapeno Greek Yogurt Dip. You can dip everything from veggies, to naan bread, to chips and crackers. It’s a light, healthy, flavorful dip that you can make yourself in just minutes. I first came upon this Greek yogurt dip at Costco and would make Costco runs just for another carton. Judge away if you wish. So imagine my disappointment when my Costco and any other store within a 500 mile radius of us suddenly stopped carrying it! I decided to create my own and it tastes just like the original, especially when you refrigerate it overnight. So yummy!

Greek Yogurt Dip with Real Ingredients

Coming up with this recipe was actually quite simple. I used the exact same ingredients that are on the label, roasted them, blended them up and mixed them with Greek Yogurt. I have got to hand it to the folks at Skotidakis for keepin’ it real with real ingredients. It made my job creating a copycat recipe very easy. It makes me like their products even more because the use real ingredients. Here’s all you need:

  • Plain Greek yogurt (not vanilla, PLAIN)
  • Red and green bell peppers
  • Garlic and onion
  • Roasted tomatoes (I buy them in a can, and drain them really well)
  • Jalapenos (I remove all of the seeds, because that’s where the heat lives so I like to make it a bit more mild for the kids)
  • Canola oil
  • Paprika and some salt to taste

More Than a Dip

  • Try using this Greek yogurt dip as a marinade! We use it for chicken, then dip the yogurt-covered chicken in breadcrumbs at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. It’s delicious!
  • Add a scoop or two of the dip to your favorite Alfredo sauce and spoon it over noodles. It adds a gorgeous color and spicy flavor.
  • Baste shrimp over a grill and then serve them alongside veggies and rice. So many possibilities!

    My husband and I LOVE this recipe! I even found a way to make it a little healthier. Use 0% fat Fage Greek Yogurt. Use water in place of oil in the blender. Only use 3 Tsp of salt split evenly between real table salt and “No-Salt” salt substitute. Use an olive oil spray (like PAM) to spritz the veggies before roasting. The taste, with these substitutions, is exactly the same to me.

  2. I wrote to the CEO of Costco about discontinuing carrying this dip. I also contacted the CEO of Skotidakis. It seems that costco required an exclusive contract, which the manufacturer gave them, and then costco decided not to carry the product any longer, but they didn’t release the manufacturer from their exclusive. This could have put a smaller company out of business. Really unconscionable.

    Since I live in the US and cannot get the original product, I’m grateful for this recipe.

    This is the dip we missed a lot when it disappeared from Costco. I made it using this recipe – we drained the roasted tomatoes for one whole day and I even drained the Greek yogurt through cheese cloth though I found out later that I could’ve skipped this step. We kept our jalapeno pepper seeds. The dip turned out really good; tasted even better than the original. The comment about salt content was very helpful. I added it until it was perfect – about 3 teaspoons for half the recipe amount.

    1. Thank you so much for this recipe. Last time I went to costco, they didn’t have it. Yesterday I checked again and still didn’t have it. I couldn’t understand why it wasn’t on the shelf but now I know. I will be making this recipe for sure. Thanks again for posting your recipe.

  4. So I still need to wait until morning, but don’t think it worked. I used red onion and I think that was mistake one. It has a sweetness I don’t like. I also think the fire roasted tomatoes were off. Our grocery store only had crushed so I did put the mixture on the stovetop to get rid of some water. The consistency is fine, but the flavor is wrong. Sigh.

    1. Oh nooo! I’m so sorry to hear that! Maybe after it sits overnight the flavors will blend better?

  5. I’m kind of freaking out! Followed this to a ‘T’ best I could- added 5 tbsp. salt as another comment suggested. Before I added the yogurt, I was terrified. Had to use food processor and a blender. Made sure I drained all, even cooked veggies drained of extra oil. Within an hour, it tasted amazing. Can’t wait to taste in the morning. You should do a video!! You have given us a successful path to surviving Skotidakis Jalapeno Greek Yogurt Dip vacancy in the U.S! Note: do not touch your tongue, eyes or lick fingers after slicing those Jalepenos- says a noob! Also… I used a non-fat Greek Yogurt- will target 2% in future for density. Ty so much!

    1. Wow thank you so much for this nice comment! Thanks for coming back to share how you made it such a success for you. We will definitely put this recipe on our “video to-do list”. 🙂

    I have been at a loss ever since Costco stopped carrying this and I can’t find the brand anywhere in my state. No doubt this will be a staple in my house once again. Thank you so much for sharing your recreation!

    1. So glad you liked it! Yes, we are still waiting for it to come back to Costco, but until then we are just making our own. 😉

      1. I am so excited to find this recipe!!! When Costco stopped carrying it, Sam’s Club started carrying it but it’s they’ve also stopped. I can’t wait to make this!!!

    Perfect!! Thanks for your help. I DID use the fire roasted and squeezed them to death! It’s a HIT! Thank you Thank you!

  8. Oh Dear…. I LOVE this dip like you did and hated that Costco didn’t carry it anymore.
    I can NOT find canned ROASTED tomatoes.
    What brand did you find and WHERE?
    Only found fire roasted with some other herbs.

    Thanks so much!

    1. I was able to find roasted tomatoes at Walmart… the fire roasted work great! Just make sure they are well drained. Hope this helps!
