In my last post for the buffalo chicken meatballs I mentioned another buffalo chicken creation coming your way in time for Superbowl, so here it is! I am a huge fan of hot dips at parties and social gatherings, it is always the first thing I dive into. I usually make a buffalo chicken dip but it is loaded with all kinds of cheese and therefore loaded with all kinds of points 🙁 I have really been playing around with yogurt in recipes since it is now a zero point food and I am amazed at how well it turns out. I thought to myself I bet I can recreate my usual dip into a lower point version by using the nonfat yogurt and I was definitely skeptical because this girl loves her dips. I promise I’m not lying guys, this dip is amazing, I really didn’t notice much difference from my high point version and this tasty hot buffalo chicken dip is just 2 smart points per 1/3 cup serving on weight watcher freestyle. I used my zero point ranch dressing in this recipe to keep points low.
Hot buffalo chicken dip
- 4 oz light softened cream cheese
- 1 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
