It’s hard to resist going back for seconds or thirds when spinach and artichoke dip is on the table. But the classic version is loaded with a ton of ingredients, including mayonnaise and sour cream, so you can’t exactly call it a healthy snack. If you love the flavor, but want to lighten it up, this recipe is for you.

With only five ingredients you can recreate your favorite hot and cheesy baked dip – protein packed hummus, fresh green chiles, raw spinach, artichoke hearts and cheese! Want to add a kick? Mix a sprinkle of cayenne pepper in before baking.
