Ingredients
Pita Chips

  • 8 whole wheat pita bread halves
  • Cooking spray
  • Mrs. Dash® any flavor

Dip

  • Cooking spray
  • 3 turkey or chicken sausage links
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach (thawed with liquid squeezed out)
  • 1 (8 ounce) 1/3 less fat cream cheese (room temperature)
  • ½ cup light sour cream
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can no added salt diced tomatoes (liquid drained)
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) can chopped green chilies
  • 1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/8 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut pita bread into triangles. Each half can be cut into 4 triangles and each triangle can be split into 2 pieces.
  3. Place triangles on large baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle with Mrs. Dash®. Bake triangles for 5-10 minutes or until crisp.
  4. Cut open and remove casings on sausage links. In a small skillet, cook sausage meat on medium heat using a spatula to separate into ground pieces until no longer pink.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine sausage and the rest of the ingredients. Stir well to thoroughly mix in cream cheese.
  6. Pour dip into 8 x 8” baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until bubbling. Stir mid-way through cooking.
