Everything you love about buffalo chicken wings, except in dip form. This can be done in a slow cooker for parties as well. Dips are usually high in fat but this one, with a few modifications, tastes just as good and helps hit your protein goals. Paired with veggie dippers, you could say you just won appetizers!

  • 4 oz cream cheese, 1/3 less fat, softened
  • 1 cup fat free Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 1/2 pkg (0.5 oz) Ranch dip powder
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (like Frank’s Red Hot)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided

  • Mix all ingredients together with 1/2 of shredded cheddar in a large bowl or mixer with the paddle attachment.
