Folks are sure to gather around this ooey-gooey, lightened-up dip whenever it's placed on any buffet table. With cheese, jalapenos and a hint of lemon, it's a treasured favorite of Mary Spencer's and her family in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

"This was delicious and rich. I served it at a party and no one believed it had been lightened up. I used fat free Greek yogurt and it was thick and creamy. I am making it again for Thanksgiving. I leave out the jalapeno but otherwise it is perfect."
