(vegetarian) buffalo chick’n dip

8 Feb

We watched the Super Bowl, which is highly unusual. Last year was actually the first time I had even seen an American Football game, and of course, it happened to be the Super Bowl. The last few years I have become increasingly more interested in watching sports, but this hasn’t really expanded to the NFL. Alas, I bring you this updated, less saturated with grease or fat, dip. Oh, it doesn’t look super pretty when it comes out, but it is mighty tasty!

    buffalo chicken dip-serves 8

  • 8 gardein crispy tenders
  • 1 12 Frank’s Red Hot (feel free to use less if you are sensitive to spicy foods
  • 13 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 8 ounce packages low-fat cream cheese softened
  • 12 cup skim milk mozzarella.
  • 12 TB Earth Balance or butter
  • Preheat oven to 420. Cook Chick’n Strips to package requirements, make sure they are crispy. Set aside. Combine the rest of the ingredients, mix well until sauce is smooth. Put sauce and strips in a baking dish. Lower Temperature to 350 and bake for 20-30 minutes, until set.


    While this might not be the most healthy thing to eat, this version (per serving) has 188 calories, 9 grams of carbs, 7 grams of fat, and 17 grams of protein. It makes a whole mess, so the serving sizes are much bigger than the typical 2 TB.
