Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Mmmm...spinach dip. Another favorite from Alton Brown, this recipe is simple and delicious. I lightened it up a little by using 1/3 less fat cream cheese, low fat mayo, and fat-free sour cream. I also added extra garlic, minced. Don't skip the red pepper flakes, the amount of spice & heat is perfect. I'm glad we didn't have any leftovers of this dip at our (early) Thanksgiving yesterday. I can't stay out of this stuff!

1 cup thawed, chopped frozen spinach
1 1/2 cups thawed, chopped frozen artichoke hearts
6 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Boil spinach and artichokes in 1 cup of water until tender and drain. Discard liquid. Heat cream cheese in microwave for 1 minute or until hot and soft. Stir in rest of ingredients and serve hot.
