Spinach Dip


This makes a nice dip for entertaining. While it isn't very low in sodium, it's low enough that you can join your guests in having some. Spinach has more natural sodium than most vegetables. I thought I could save some by using fresh instead of frozen, but it doesn't make a significant difference. Most of the sodium comes form the cheeses and you could reduce them and still have something that tasted good. Also, the amount of sodium in cream cheese and sour cream varies by brand and type, so read the labels carefully.

6 oz Spinach,Thawed And Drained
2 oz Cream Cheese
1/2 c Sour Cream
1/4 t Garlic Powder
2 T Parmesan
1/4 c Monterey Jack Cheese, Shredded

Mix ingredients together in food processor bowl. Process until smooth. Heat in microwave until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Serve with homemade tortilla chips or low sodium French bread.
