Ready In:
6 cups dip




  • Drain any liquid that may be sitting on top of the sour cream.
  • Mix everything together well.
  • Bake it at 350 degrees, stirring once or twice, until heated through (probably 40 minutes).
  • If lazy, hungry, or just plain impatient, use the microwave (takes only a few minutes). This mix freezes well. There is no need to bake before freezing. You may want to freeze this recipe in four 2-cup containers (i. e. large plastic sour cream tubs)
  • Serve with tortilla chips or pita.

  1. This was soooo good. I served it with torilla chips and some toasted sourdough rounds. I didn't have the chilil pepper flakes and it was still very good. This was a big hit and I will be making it again. Thanks for the great recipe!
  2. I used fat free cream cheese, mozzerella cheese and sour cream. I also mixed everything together and then put it in a 2-quart crock pot. I took the crock pot to work, turned it on to high for 2 hours and then turned it down to warm. I served with tortilla chips, Parmesan Garlic Triscuit Thin Crisps and Garlic Herb FlipSides pretzel crackers. Everyone loved this dip and there wasn't any left to take home. At least 6 people asked me for the recipe, and everyone was thrilled that is was such a healthy snack.
  3. I didn't use lowfat ingredients. I personally thought it was a little peppery but I received a lot of compliments on it when I served it at a party.
  4. Loved this! I followed the recipe exactly. I baked half for a tailgate party, and stashed half in the freezer for later. I liked that it wasn't as greasy as some of these dips can be. Thanks for sharing!
  5. This was DELISH! I actually omitted the artichokes to just make a low-fat spinach dip. I've tried a lot of these recipes, and this is one of the best! It was easy to follow and had a nice flavor with a little kick. Perfecto! Will be making again & again!


  1. great dip! i used all no fat items and low fat cheese. i even added mushrooms which i microwaved in a bowl with half a lemon's juice until cooked. using fresh onions instead of onion powder added some zing. all in all... good stuff
