Healthier Best Spinach Dip Ever

Recipe by  

"It's amazing what a healthy spin we were able to put on this great spinach dip by using fresh leek, more spinach, whole wheat bread, and lower fat cheese and mayo. No need to feel guilty as you reach for a second helping!"

I didn't have a leek, but I did use the Knorr Dry Vegetable Mix. I halved this recipe so that it would have more spinach/water chestnuts. I also replaced a lot of the sour cream with greek yogurt. You couldn't even tell. You mention cheese in the description, but I don't see any.

Also used plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Everyone thought it was sour cream. Made my own tortilla chips by cutting flour tortillas into wedges, sprinkle with a little cayenne pepper and baked. They worked well too.

I also replaced the Light Sour Cream with Non-Fat Greek Yogurt. Additionally, I added a dash of Smoky Paprika and a dash of Cayenne Pepper for a nice kick. I served it with an assortment of crisp veggies instead of the Bread bowl. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe!

I added one red pepper diced and doubled the spinach and it came out awesome!
