Variations for Low Fat Buffalo Chicken Dip
Make it Vegan: Use 8 ounces of vegan cream cheese in place of the Neufchâtel Cheese and cottage cheese. I am a big fan of Kite Hill, which is a nut-based cheese. They have a Jalapeno flavor which is super-spicy and would be great in this if you like things really hot. Use non-dairy yogurt, and either tempeh or chicken substitute (like Beyond Meat or Gardein) in place of the chicken. Omit the blue cheese and top with Daiya Shreds.
Make it Dairy Free: Follow the same instructions for making this recipe vegan, but leave the chicken in.
Make it Keto: Use 8 ounces full-fat cream cheesen place of the Neufchâtel Cheese and cottage cheese, and sour cream in place of the yogurt. Serve with carrots, celery, and cauliflower.
You can use mozzarella in place of the cheddar if you wish.
