Buffalo Dip {the healthier version}

Sharing is caring!

I am just going to be honest–this year the Super Bowl is all about the food for me! If the Packers were playing I might care more about the game (I jumped on that bandwagon when I married my husband).

Super Bowl food means lots of dips, finger foods and appetizers (check out my 35 game day recipe round-up for more fabulous ideas from other food bloggers).  One thing I like to eat on game day is anything buffalo-buffalo chicken dipbuffalo wings or maybe layered buffalo chicken nachos (um, yum!). So for Sunday I decided to try out a healthier version of a buffalo dip using Greek yogurt and created this Healthy Buffalo Dip using a recipe I saw on Dannon’s website.

This dip is light and has just the right amount of heat and the great flavor of blue cheese mixed in. You have a lot of dipping options with this one–chips, celery or other vegetables, wings, crackers and the list goes on!

I love that this is a healthier version! I tend to eat way too many unhealthy things while watching sporting events I don't care about haha

Ha I hear ya! :) I usually end up standing at the food table and drinking a few too many beers. Pro football isn't my thing, I am more of a college football girl! Thanks for stopping by!
