A go-to appetizer for parties, this spinach and artichoke dip has all the creamy-inside, brown-and-crispy-on-top texture and cheesy taste that makes dips like this appealing, but with less calories and fat.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring until well-blended. Add 4 ounces (1 cup) mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parmesan; stir well. Spoon mixture into a broiler-safe 1 1/2-quart glass or ceramic baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella and remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

Step 3

Preheat broiler to high (leave dish in oven). Broil dip for 3 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.

This turned out to be quite good. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen spinach. It felt like a lot of work to mix everything together, maybe I should have softened the cream cheese more.

Bite-sized twist

I like to add a twist to this by making bite size phyllo shells filled with the spinach artichoke dip.  I also like to add green chiles.  It is very popular when I take these to a potluck.

I thought this was supper easy and tasted great. I do have to admit that I did not do the light version. I used all regular cream cheese and sour cream. So other than it was higher in calorie It tasted great.

Super easy and very flavorful. It did not feel it was lacking vs. the full fat versions.

Made the night before Christmas get-together then refrigerated. Baked before guests arrived. Everyone loved it. I did not use any fat free items though. You could tasted the garlic but it was not over powering at all. It was more creamy than other dips i have had, so if you like it more chunky, I would recommend adding more spinach or artichokes. This is the best home-made recipe I have made (out of several) however I have had better at a restaurant before, which is why i gave 4 stars instead of 5.

There are so many spinach artichoke dip recipes out there that you could make a different for every party. However, this is one that I will definately fall back on from now on. I like that it didn't have mayonnaise. Delicious!
