Enchilada dips are usually made with a base of full fat sour cream which can be replaced with non-fat Greek yogurt. It has the same tang and richness as sour cream, but is packed with protein and is lighter on calories. Enchilada Sauce gives the dip instant flavor and rounds out the consistency too.

The Lamar County Trojans (4-4), depleted by injuries and defections, defeated a Top 10 team in the Herad County Braves 14-11 on the road in Franklin Friday night.
LC brought only about 35 players to the game.
Jonah Stout started at quarterback for Lamar and was solid. Malik Collier, who has taken most snaps at QB this season, moved to wide receiver. The changeup got head coach Bryan Love his first real signature win at LC.
Brave quarterback Emory Jones, who has committed to Ohio State, spent most of the night at wide receiver and the Trojan defense contained him for the most part. Andruw O'Neal and Jaylund Harris had key interceptions for the Trojans late in the game.
Realtime scoring from the game by Walter Geiger.

As word was breaking that the FBI was reopening its invesitigation into Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal, Donald Trump Jr. spoke to a packed house Friday at the 1100-seat sanctuary at Rock Springs Church in Milner.
The event opened with a rousing invocation by Pastor Mark Burns that brought the flag-waving throng to its feet.
Trump Jr. noted he had been brought up to work and can drive a D9 Caterpillar. "My Dad doesn't need this job. He is taking the stones thrown at him and the arrows launched at him because he loves this country and wants to take it back from the politicians," he said.
Dr. Benny Tate agreed. "Poly means many and a tick is a blood-sucking insect. We need to take our country back," he added.
After his remarks, Trump Jr. waded into the crowd, greeting well wishers and taking selfies. He then posed with the Rock Springs Academy Chorus for photos and exchanged high fives with the young performers who sang the National Anthem.

Though it has been overshadowed by the presidential election and hurricane frenzy, drought has set in here and it has gone by the critical stage to near disaster.
Sauney and Geraldine Pippin got out of the military in 1970 and came back to Redbone to farm along with Sauney’s brother Jackson and his wife Jackie at sprawling County Line Farm. They know farming, they know the land and they know the status of row cropping and raising cattle here.
“In the 46 years I have been back on the farm, I have never seen it this dry. I’ve seen soybeans dry up. I’ve seen cotton dry up. I’ve seen winter grazing dry up. Anything planted on dry land is dead, period. Irrigation is the only thing that has saved us. Our creeks and ponds have dried up and we have dried some up irrigating out of them,” Pippin said.
