TASTE THE RECIPE: Skinn(IER) Spinach & Artichoke Dip

“Dip” is kind of the best word ever because it automatically has the power to make you hungry. It’s great to use for parties (ugly sweater party, anyone?), and don’t even get us started on Ruffles and French Onion dip. Today’s dip is a bit healthier than your normcore Spinach & Artichoke Dip and you can even pair it with a bunch of colorful veggies to impress your veggie-juice-loving friends. Or if you dig dipping chips in your dip (try saying that 3 times fast), dip some pita chips in that sucker.

Enjoy this spinach & artichoke dip without ALL of the guilt. Just some of it.

1½ cups Parmesan Cheese

What To Do:

1. Have a medium pot + medium heat make love and melt together cream cheese, Greek Yogurt & the parm dot com.

 2. Stir until it’s all melty goodness and once you’ve got a light boil going on, add the artichokes & jalapeños (and then practice rolling your tongue saying jalapeños).

3. Add spinach!

4. Add garlic cloves (if you want to take the easy way out just crush those suckers in a garlic crusher).

5. Finally, add some carrots or pita because dousing your fingers in greasy chips isn’t as pretty (but is good for a late night sesh when nobody else is around).
