There are few things better for a party than buffalo chicken dip. It’s creamy, cheesy, rich, and delicious.
Buffalo chicken dip has a ton of flavor, and only needs a few ingredients, most of which you probably have at your home already. If you don’t, you can stock your fridge with all of the ingredients and have them ready at a moment’s notice.
With a million options for what you could serve, buffalo chicken dip is still quite possibly the perfect party addition.
Buffalo Chicken Dip is Keto Approved
One of the most popular diet trends today is the ketogenic diet, or “keto”. Keto requires you to eat high fat, moderate protein, and, most importantly, low carb. Too many carbs in one day will cause you to produce insulin, and push your body out of ketosis.
Once you are out of ketosis, it can take days or weeks to get back to being fat-adapted, so this is not a diet that allows for cheat days. Since most party foods are based on white flour and sugar, it is rare to make party snacks that are keto-friendly.
Typically, you have to make a special recipe for your keto party guests. Since Buffalo chicken dip only contains ranch, chicken, cheese, and spices, it is automatically keto-friendly, while being delicious and party-friendly for all of your guests.
This means that you aren’t making a special dish just for your few keto friends, and trying to figure out the appropriate amount, then guarding the keto dish from the regular folks so it is available for the people who need it.
You can make your full batch of Buffalo chicken dip, for all of your party guests, knowing you are keto compliant, while still having enough for everyone to enjoy.
Just serve your dip with crudite and pork rinds in addition to corn chips, and you will be friendly for your keto guests.
Buffalo Chicken Dip is Satisfying
Buffalo wings are one of the most popular party snacks of all time, but they are a pain for most gatherings. If you aren’t careful, you will end up with plates of bones on every available flat surface, and stains on the carpet from dropped wings.
It isn’t easy to hold a plate while standing, dip a wing in dressing, and clean the meat off the bone with one hand. Options that let you get the flavor of wings without the contortionist eating technique are clear winners.
Buffalo chicken dip hits that satisfying flavor note of chicken wings, and you can find all kinds of crunchy additions for texture. Bonus points for no bones to worry about.
Buffalo chicken dip is also rich and filling, without being excessively expensive. This makes it a great option for a party with big eaters where you don’t have to break the bank.
You can make different trays of it as well to allow for varying spice levels, one with bleu cheese, one with ranch, even a vegetarian version with chicken substitutes or no meat at all.
Buffalo Chicken Dip is Easy
When you are preparing party food for a large group, convenience is key. Dishes that allow you to feed a crew with minimal prep allows you to focus on enjoying your own party.
Buffalo chicken dip can be made with chicken you prepare ahead, rotisserie chicken you pull yourself, or even canned or frozen precooked chicken for convenience. Mix the ingredients and go, so you can even replenish during the party without missing most of the party.
In summary, Buffalo chicken dip is convenient, satisfying, and able to serve a versatile crowd, making it one of the best party dishes you can serve!
