I have made this three times in a month, now. I use all low / no fat cream cheese and mozzerella cheese, and I just use one large can of artichoke hearts (not marinated in oil -- or 1 can + one jar of the marinated ones if making for company. I used low fat cream cheese and sour cream. The one way I disguise the low fat nature of this is to add a package of dry veggie soup mix (or your fave), and usually I add spinach that I've briefly steamed. It's one point on Weight Wacher's if made this way. LOVE to keep on hand to spread on a pita or roll into a slice of ham with a fist full of spinach leaves. YUM!
This was a huge hit at a brunch we hosted on Memorial Day. Since one guest is allergic to everything in the scallion family, I used red onion instead of green. It tasted great and added a little color. The only other deviation was using 2 whole jalapenos since we enjoy spicy foods. The pita chips were the perfect dippers. Thanks for sharing this fantastic version of a classic!
Very good! I had this recipe for a while and decided to do it for a family gathering. It was tangy and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and made the pita triangles to accompany it. All here loved it. I was sorry that I'd halved it instead of the full recipe. Thanks!
