There’s something about eating chips and dips while watching football.  It’s just total perfection.  This weekend I was seriously craving spinach artichoke dip.  But in an effort to lighten up one of these all-time favorites, I decided to try something new.  I wanted something that still tasted like traditional football watching munchies.  So I went semi-healthy.  I didn’t touch the holy grail that is spinach artichoke dip.  I’m sorry, I just firmly believe that it needs every bit of mayo, cheese and sour cream that the recipe calls for.  So the only option was to change the vessel that you use to eat the dip.  And spinach artichoke stuffed mushrooms was born.  I still got to eat this yummy treat without quite as much guilt.
