Skinnier Buffalo Chicken Dip {Recipe Swap}

Skinnier Buffalo Chicken Dip

4 Ounces (half block) Neufchatel Cheese (softened)
1 Cup of Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Cup of Reduced Fat Mexican Cheese Blend (I used Sargento)
½ Cup of Hot Sauce (or to taste)
1 T of Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning…dry
3 Cups of Marinated, Boiled and Shredded Chicken
Paprika (optional)

Mix all ingredients well and transfer to a greased baking dish, sprinkle lightly with paprika, if desired.  Cook in a 350* oven for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. I will also broil for a few minutes if I am serving immediately.

With the Summer season just beginning, this is a lighter appetizer that is less guilty than the full fat version.  Serve with celery, carrots and/or whole wheat pretzel twists. Perfect to serve, or take to, those parties & barbecues!

This is also pairs nicely with the FF version of Spinach Dip.  FF mayo & sour cream, thawed chopped spinach and a packet of Lipton vegetable soup mix.  Mix all, let rest for a bit in the fridge (stir occasionally) and serve in a Pumpernickel bread bowl.

Thanks for visiting!
