Skinny Spinach Dip

Check out this week's giveaway with Nineteen Eleven!

It's not secret, I love to snack.  Especially, if it's salty and crunchy.

Operation Hot Mama has only 32 more days, so it's time to get super serious and get everyone on board, including family and friends.



This recipe is made with greek yogurt instead of sour cream and boasts only 70 calories per 1/2 c serving (according to my recipe creation via My Fitness Pal).  Serve with veggies and you've got a great snack.  Even with pretzels, as they also fill my crunchy-salty need, and it's still not as bad as a bag of Doritos (which was my previous norm.)

Here's what you need:
8 oz non-fat Greek yogurt
1/2 c non-fat sour cream (or in my case, just sub in more yogurt)
1 package of dry veggie soup mix (or if you don't have any, a good serving of garlic salt and pepper)
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 yellow or white onion, chopped
1 can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1 package frozen spinach, thawed and drained well (I use a few layers of paper towels and squeeze over the sink)

Mix well and let chill for a bit before serving, if you can wait that long!
