Tasty on the skinny...

 Future Skinny Buffalo Dip...

Ben and I love Buffalo Chicken Dip, but it's not the friendliest thing to eat for one's figure so it was time for a makeover.  I've tried using fat free cream cheese before but was never a fan of the taste, so I use the 1/3 less fat, or Neufchatel, for daily use.  I figured that it would be okay here thought since I was using so much hot sauce, and it was, giving the creamy consistency needed without the extra fat.  I also opted to skip adding bleu cheese crumbles or topping it with the usual shredded cheddar and it still tasted very good with the celery sticks and baked tortilla chips I had just for this purpose.

Skinny Buffalo Dip

8oz. pkg. fat free cream cheese
8-10 oz. can chicken breast, well drained 
1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot (or more, to taste)

Mix the ingredients well and you're ready to go.  Keep it super skinny and microwave or bake in a small dish until hot.  If you are serving to company you may want to bake it sprinkled with a handful of 2% sharp cheddar cheese (fat free cheese doesn't melt right).  Serve with celery sticks and baked tortilla chips.


  1. I've heard that hot sauce and hot peppers are great diet foods anyhow. (Something about a metabolism booster.) I love Buffalo chicken dip, too. A skinny version is what we all need right now, I think. Thanks!

  2. Yes, capsaicin speeds up the metabolism...but really, we just like things spicy. Miami U's bowl game is Thursday evening (Ben and I are both graduates) and I'll be making a fat free cucumber dill dip (need to work on the name) to enjoy with that :) Have a great year Rosemary and thanks for reading...
