    Recipe Introduction

    2 Tablespoons = 1 Point

    List of Ingredients

    10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed very dry
    14-oz can artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped
    8 oz vegetable-flavored cream cheese spread
    1/2 cup nonfat or light mayonnaise
    1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese with hot peppers
    (or use plain Monterey Jack for a milder flavor)
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Place the spinach, artichoke hearts, cream cheese,
    mayonnaise, and half of the Monterey Jack and Parmesan
    cheeses in a medium bowl and stir to mix well.

    Coat a 9-inch pie pan with nonstick cooking spray
    and spread the mixture evenly in the pan. Cover
    with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes.

    Remove the foil and top with the remaining Parmesan
    and Monterey Jack cheeses. Bake uncovered for an
    additional 5 minutes. Serve warm with low-fat
    tortilla chips or whole-grain crackers.
