We went to Las Vegas last month. I know what you're thinking. What was a pregnant girl doing in Vegas? Well, this pregnant girl was shopping, eating (mainly pistachio gelato), and spending quality time with fantastic friends. Another of the spectacular things that I ate was Buffalo Chicken Dip at Holsteins. All you Pinteresters out there may be familiar with this one-- it gets a lot of attention. One bite and I knew that I had to health-ify it a bit by adding some veggies and not using ranch dressing as my base. The verdict? Just as good, if not better (spoken by my hubbster).
Lighter Buffalo Chicken Dip
1 lb chicken breast, trimmed, boiled and shredded
3/4 cup hot sauce
1/2 cup low fat ricotta cheese
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
3 celery stalks, chopped
1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together hot sauce and ricotta cheese. Fold in shredded chicken, celery, onion and 1/4 cup of blue cheese. Transfer mixture into a shallow baking dish and sprinkle with remaining blue cheese. Bake for ~20 minutes or until bubbly.
Serve hot with celery and carrots sticks, pita chips, or tortilla chips.
