Keto Buffalo Dip

Is buffalo chicken dip keto friendly?

Generally, yes—the average buffalo chicken dip tends to be low in carbs keto friendly! Most recipes consist of a cream cheese base, combined with buffalo sauce, cheddar cheese, and blue cheese or ranch dressing. For this recipe, I’ve just replaced the ranch with sour cream for added richness, and used real blue cheese for added flavor!

Is buffalo sauce keto friendly?

Yes, buffalo sauce is an excellent keto friendly condiment! In most cases, buffalo sauce is just a combination of vinegar, peppers, and spices—like a hot sauce. There’s no added sugars and no carbohydrates, just a whole lot of zesty flavor. In this recipe, I used Noble Made’s medium buffalo sauce, which is also paleo and whole30 approved!
