Low Fat Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Hot cheesy dips are by far a weakness of mine. No big surprise there since I love all things cheese. Unfortunately these yummy dips are full of fat and calories,which is probably what makes them such a crowd pleaser. I have taken one of my favorite appetizers and given it a healthy twist by using reduced fat cheeses and increasing the amount of spinach and artichokes for a veggie boost.

 I have made this Spinach Artichoke Dip for years and it is always a hit.

With football season underway I suggest making this appetizer for your next tailgate party.


- 2- 8oz packages light cream cheese, softened

- 2- 14oz cans progresso artichoke hearts, drained, chopped

- 1- 10oz box frozen chopped spinach

- 1/2 Cup light mayonnaise

- 1/2 Cup shredded Parmesan cheese

- 1/2 Cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, plus 1/4 cup for the topping (optional)

- 2 cloves garlic

- 1 teaspoon basil

- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

- salt and pepper to taste.


- Cook spinach in the microwave according to the box directions. Drain all excess liquid.

- Cream together cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan, mozzarella, garlic, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

- Add in the artichoke hearts and spinach (drained well) and mix till blended

- Spray a baking dish with cooking spray, pour in dip and top with extra mozzarella cheese.


- Bake on 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

**Serve hot with crackers or toasted bread**
