+ 1 lb. fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
+ 2 tsp. lemon juice

Reduce heat to simmer; mix in sour cream, dill weed, paprika, salt and pepper and simmer until slightly thickened and warm.
2. Serve warm with pita crisps, multigrain, low fat crackers or breadsticks.

* Baked Pita Crisps: Cut 2 whole wheat pita breads in half horizontally with scissors or serrated knife. Cut each half into 8 triangles. Arrange in single layer on cookie sheet; bake in 400ºF for 8-10 min. or until lightly browned.

* Substitute 2 Tbsp. fresh minced dill for the dried and garnish with fresh dill sprigs.

* Tortilla Crisps: Substitute 4 small whole wheat flour tortillas for pitas.
