Low Carb Buffalo Dip

Low Carb Buffalo Dip

My low carb Buffalo Dip is packed with protein and flavor! It’s the perfect appetizer to enjoy at a game day potluck or a yummy lunch to pair with crackers or carrots and celery.

Low Carb Buffalo Dip

Here’s the Deets on this Healthy Recipe

To make this yummy dip you’ll need greek yogurt and cream cheese for the bulk of this recipe. The greek yogurt will be where we will get the added protein in addition to the chicken.

I swapped out the sour cream in this recipe with greek yogurt to boost the protein content and reduce the fat content as well.

I kept the classic parts of this dip the same though by using the buffalo sauce as the key for doctoring this up along with the cheese. You can certainly choose a lower fat cheese such as mozzarella, but for this recipe I used my favorite cheese, which is a 4 cheese blend.

Low Carb Buffalo Dip

Here’s The Key Ingredients:

  • Buffalo sauce
  • Greek yogurt
  • Cream cheese (softened)
  • Garlic powder
  • Shredded chicken
  • Cheese of choice
  • Green onions

You are going to need a pretty large bowl for this recipe as the yield is a generous 8×8 dip that is Thick.

I would also recommend getting some carrots, celery, and crackers to pair with this as it makes for a great crunchy combo!

It’s Super Simple

This dip is by far one of the quickest recipes you can make for a potluck or even as a part of your meal prep for the week.

It’s as simple as
