-8 oz package cream cheese (reduced fat or fat free is fine)
-2 tsp dried dill weed
-8 oz container of hummus
-1/2 cucumber, chopped
-1 large tomato, chopped
-1/2 red onion, chopped
-4 oz crumbled feta
Start by placing an 8 oz package of cream cheese in a medium bowl and let it come to room temperature (or zap it in the microwave for 10 seconds if you don't have time to wait). Once it is easy to work with, add 2 tsp of dried dill weed and stir until it is well distributed throughout the cream cheese. Spread the mixture in the bottom of a 9 inch round dish. Dump the contents of an 8 oz container of hummus over the cream cheese and spread evenly. Top the hummus with the chopped cucumber, tomato, and red onion. Finally sprinkle the crumbled feta over the chopped veggies and serve with pita chips.
Quick, easy and also delicious... (tomato) LOVE when that happens!
