Homemade Buffalo Chicken Dip

Homemade Buffalo Chicken Dip

Ahhhh, my FAVORITE cheat snack of all time. I try not too make it too often, because all self control goes out the window, and in 3-2-1, its somehow all gone 😡 Buffalo chicken anything is just amazing, don’t you agree?? However, I do think mine is topnotch! There are a few reasons why! Well, really only one! haha

I can almost remember the first time I tried buffalo chicken dip, I mean I feel like that is something everyone would remember right!? — okay maybe not! This recipe is super simple to remember. Not one of my healthier snacks, but always a crowd pleaser!

ingredients

These are the ingredients! All you need is:

1 lb of chicken (shredded) add a little pepper for seasoning and flavor!

8 oz of blue cheese dressing

8 oz Texas Pete Buffalo Wing Sauce (my secret ingredient!! I just love the flavor this one has!)

8 oz 1/3 fat Philadelphia cream cheese

8 oz  Sharp Cheddar cheese

Multigrain Chips are also a must! (taste way better than the normal corn ones!)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix all the ingredients together. I like to add the cream cheese first, then  blue cheese dressing, then buffalo sauce; mix well! Once mixed add in cheese and then chicken!! Pour into a oven safe piece of bakeware and pop in the oven for about 15-20 mins (keep en eye on it!) This was everything will melt together and be AHHH-mazing!

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

This is one of my all time favorite recipes! There is something about it that is so refreshing; I think its the vinegar, I love vinegar! It just makes it CRISP! -Do you know what I mean??

This is a clean eating recipe, I first had it when I was doing the Ultimate Reset! (Which was AWESOMEEE by the way!) Although I still make a lot of the recipes that were in that cleanse, this one appears on our dinner table more often than others!

The cool thing about this is, you can easily incorporate the 21 Day Fix containers with it! So you can start talking in colors like everyone else is!

“So, what did you have for lunch Christine?”

“I had 2 yellow, 2 red, and 1 purple”

aka: turkey sandwich and greek yogurt and an apple

Ingredients:

  • 1 English cucumber, sliced and cut into half moons
  • 1/4 small container cherry tomatoes, each cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red inion (optional, I personally opt out of this)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped freshly flat-leaf parsley (you can use the dried seasoning too)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh bail leaves (dried seasoning is okay here too, but fresh is always better!)
  • Himalayan salt (to taste)
  • herbal seasoning (to taste)

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a boss and toss.

I have also made this, as I mentioned before, with the 21 Day Fix containers. I basically used 1 green for the cucumbers (after slices and halved) and 1 green container for the halved cherry tomatoes. Then added the oil and seasons as needed for the quantity I felt right. They are pretty close to what is already here!
