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.
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.
