Skinny Dancin Restaurant Spinach Dip

Friday, August 22, 2008

Gooey, cheesy spinach dip and tortilla chips -- One of the most delicious appetizers you can order!

It's also one of the most fattening (Please don't be one of those people that pretends anything made with spinach can't possibly be bad for your diet!).

So how can something contain mayo, cheese and sour cream, and still be guilt-free? Is it magic? Nah, just some clever substitution action!!!

Here ya go Football Fans... I bring you....

Skinny Dancin Restaurant Spinach Dip

4 oz. Lifetime Fat Free Monterey Jack Cheese (or another fat-free white hard cheese, like Muenster or Mozzarella)
4 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
10 tsp. Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. shallots, chopped finely
6 tbsp. fat-free mayo
1 oz. light soy milk
1 10 oz. pkg. chopped spinach, thawed and drained

In a medium-sized saucepan, melt your Monterey Jack over a low flame. In a separate pan, saute garlic and shallots with some nonstick cooking spray. Add soy milk to melted cheese, stirring continuously. Next, add mayo, sour cream and parmesan into your cheese mixture, still stirring over low heat. Add your sauteed garlic and shallots, as well as water chestnuts. Add your well-drained, chopped spinach and mix thoroughly. Spoon your dip into a medium-sized casserole dish and bake in a preheated 325-degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Voila! Your spinach-y masterpiece is complete. You may add salt and/or pepper if desired. Serves 6-8.
