In the Orlando Sentinel test kitchen we easily trimmed a significant amount of the fat grams by using Land O' Lakes Fat Free Half-and-Half for the heavy cream in the spinach dip and substituted low-fat, plain yogurt for the sour cream.
The chef recommends making the dip a day ahead to allow the flavors ample time to meld. Also, the spinach mixture and the spinach dip sauce should be chilled before combining them The spinach dip is best served warm with white corn tortillas and fresh salsa. Heat in a microwave or in a saucepan on the stovetop, stir frequently so that the mixture wont burn.
