“I created this lighter version of a hot spinach dip after my husband and five kids raved about a similar appetizer at one of our favorite restaurants,” says Debbie Marrone of Warner Robins, Georgia. TIP: “It's great with tortilla chips, bagel chips or low-fat wheat crackers,” Debbie suggests.


  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 4 ounces fat-free cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Assorted fresh vegetables


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 7-8 minutes or until cheese is melted, stirring occasionally. Serve warm with vegetables.
