Hot spinach and artichoke dip has become a popular party appetizer. This lighter version of the classic hot dip is packed with full flavor and rich, creamy texture, just like the original!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 (8-ounce) package low-fat cream cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 (6-ounce) package fresh baby spinach
  • 1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add cream cheese and garlic; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly until cream cheese melts.
     
  2. Stir in spinach and cook until wilted. Stir in remaining ingredients and cook until cheese is melted and mixture is heated through. Serve immediately.

CALORIES!! well now this recipe does plainly state butter CREAM CHEESE and SOUR CREAM although a lighter version it is still full of fat and probably not frou

really, really good! we added 1/2 tsp hot sauce to send it over the top

INSTEAD OF THE ARTICHOKES I ADDED TINY SHRIMP AND THE WATERCHESTNUTS FOR THE CRUNCH FACTOR, AND IT WAS DELICIOUS!

I would add sliced water chestnuts just before serving to give it a crunchy texture.

How about weight watcher's points or calorie numbers

Always a favorite with guests and family CLR-Z

MADE THIS FOR MY DINNER PARTY LAST EVENING. EVERYONE THOUGHT THIS TO BE A KEEPER. THIS RECIPE IS REQUESTED FOR OUR NEXT GET TOGETHER.

How many carbs and calories?

how about calorie counts for the recipes including fat amount? So important. Thank you.

Yes, the nutritional counts would be a big help.

Tuna Twist

We teamed a pasta salad with a tuna salad to come up with this dish that's summertime-perfect and very budget-friendly. Our Tuna Twist is a new take on an old recipe that's great for a light summer dinner. Or you can take this tuna pasta salad to a picnic or potluck (where it'll be the first thing to disappear!).
