Spicy Sun Dried Tomato Spread

Ok so I may have neglected my blog for most of the month but I think I am now back and ready to post. Summer can become so busy with many activities and just plain wanting to just enjoy the nice weather and not be inside. Summer is also a time for many get togethers so, finding  something new and exciting to bring to a gathering is always a new challenge I look for. You can never go wrong with a dip because you can use chips, crackers, and veggies so everyone can pick their poison to dip. I found this recipe at Eat Yourself Skinny which is a great blog with low-fat recipes which of course I am always interested in. This dip is very low in fat but bursting with flavor!!

Spicy Sun Dried Tomato Spread

1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, without oil, dry packed. ( I only had oil packed just rinsed and patted dry)
8 ounces Fat Free Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt ( I used greek)
1/4 Cup Chili Sauce
4 Tbs Scallions Chopped
1 Clove Garlic Minced
1/2 Tsp Celery Seed
1/8 Tsp Cayenne Pepper ( Depending on how HOT you want it)

Place Tomatoes in a small bowl. Cover with 1 cup of boiling water and allow to stand at room temperature for 10 minutes. Drain and chop. Meanwhile in another bowl combine cream cheese, yogurt, and chili sauce still well till smooth. Add tomatoes and remaining ingredients. Mix well and refrigerate till ready to serve. I suggest making the night before you need it so all the flavors can really combine.

Serve with your favorite Veggies or Crackers.

Look at the Beautiful Flavorful Color!! No one would believe this dip is Fat Free!! Shhh
