If you ask my husband about my cooking skills, he’ll tell you that most of my go-to recipes involve Buffalo sauce or cheese. He’s kind of wrong but also really really right.

I absolutely love Buffalo sauce. I’ll put it in my eggs in the morning, on a boring sandwich, in a soup, you name it. It can probably use some Frank’s Red Hot.

This lightened up Buffalo Chicken Dip is just 4SP per serving on the Blue, Purple and Green plans. Now you might say “What a second, I’ve seen 0 SmartPoint Buffalo Chicken Dip!” but for real, I just can’t get on board with plain greek yogurt that makes other recipes zero points. It makes everything taste like yogurt. And I don’t want my dip tasting like yogurt. I want it to taste as close to full fat heaven as I can get it.

I also love using this dip on sandwiches or on salads. It’s great to make ahead, portion out, and use for lunches!
