baked hot  spinach artichoke dip with a side of chips

Your favorite party dip is made healthy in this Nutrisystem-approved recipe! Covered in Parmesan cheese and baked to perfection, this hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip is a creamy, dreamy appetizer that’s packed with flavor and fiber.

To make this easy dip recipe, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and grab a large mixing bowl. Combine drained frozen spinach and chopped canned artichoke hearts with chopped onions, black pepper and minced garlic. To add creaminess, we also throw in some plain nonfat Greek yogurt, reduced fat cream cheese and shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese.

Stir the mixture until it’s well combined and transfer it into a baking dish. Give it a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and bake for 25 minutes. Finally, turn the oven to broil and let it simmer for another minute or two. Once it’s ready, you can serve the dish right in the pan you baked it in with a bowl of chips, pita bread or veggies! Just be careful and let it cool before serving, as it will be very hot straight out of the oven.

This hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip recipe makes eight servings, so it’s perfect for serving up at your next get together. We think it would make the perfect St. Patrick’s Day appetizer because of the pretty green color and seasonal spring ingredients! One serving clocks in at 151 calories and counts as one PowerFuel, one Extra and one Vegetable serving on the Nutrisystem program.

Serve up this satisfying baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip recipe with delicious and diet-friendly dippers! We love it with whole wheat pita bread or pita chips. Baby carrots would also be delicious and fit into the St. Patrick’s Day Irish flag color scheme. You can also try it with sliced cucumber or zucchini, whole grain crackers, tortilla chips and whole wheat bread or bagel slices.
