Lightened Up Spinach Artichoke Dip

Yes, it’s football season! And Phillies baseball playoffs! Yippee! You see, if I didn’t like sports, I would be a football, baseball and hockey season widow. Luckily I like to watch. But most of all, I really like to make snacks for the big games. So on many weekends, you will find our family in front of the TV watching our favorite teams. When hubby and son start yelling at the TV, I know it’s time to check on the snacks. We love this spinach and artichoke dip and I like to lighten up anything I possibly can. You will find various versions of this recipe but this is the one I frequently use. Enjoy! Come back later this week to hear more about the Iowa Cornucopia Tour I participated in.

Lightened Up Spinach Artichoke Dip

1 can (14 oz.) artichoke hearts, drained, finely chopped
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup low fat or non fat sour cream
1 cup shredded (part skim) Italian(or pizza) cheese blend
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
dash of cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a medium size bowl. Place in an ovenproof casserole dish. Bake for about 25 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and golden on the top. Let cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve with chips, veggies or crackers.

This would go great with pita bread. Mmm, I can almost taste it.
