I didn't have a leek, but I did use the Knorr Dry Vegetable Mix. I halved this recipe so that it would have more spinach/water chestnuts. I also replaced a lot of the sour cream with greek yogurt. You couldn't even tell. You mention cheese in the description, but I don't see any.


Also used plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Everyone thought it was sour cream. Made my own tortilla chips by cutting flour tortillas into wedges, sprinkle with a little cayenne pepper and baked. They worked well too.


I also replaced the Light Sour Cream with Non-Fat Greek Yogurt. Additionally, I added a dash of Smoky Paprika and a dash of Cayenne Pepper for a nice kick. I served it with an assortment of crisp veggies instead of the Bread bowl. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe!
