HG is here with the guilt-free spinach dip of your dreams!
Gooey, cheesy spinach dip and tortilla chips -- it's one of the most delicious
appetizers you can order. It's also one of the most fattening (Please don't be
one of those people that pretends anything made with spinach can't possibly
be bad for your diet!). So how can something contain mayo, cheese and
sour cream, and still be guilt-free? Is it magic? Nah, just some clever
substitution action, courtesy of the swap-mistress herself, Hungry Girl.

medium-sized casserole dish and bake in a preheated 325-degree oven for
20-25 minutes. Voila! Your spinach-y masterpiece is complete. You may add
salt and/or pepper if desired. Serves 6-8.

homemade baked pita chips made from Western Bagel's Alternative Pita.
