I don’t watch football. And I didn’t tune into the super bowl. And buffalo dip has a reputation of being a football/game-day, finger food. But all that goes out the window, because I do none of the above! But, I still have the need for this dip in my life! It’s creamy, dairy free, and taste like it has cheese, so basically, I’m so there it’s not even funny.

Lunch today looked like a giant plate of veggie slices and a scoop of this creamy buffalo dip, made with chicken, cauliflower rice, and a whole lot of spicy dairy free buffalo cream sauce!

buffalo chicken- how to

This stuff though! It’s spicy, creamy, packed with buffalo flavor, and incredibly easy to make! If you don’t have cooked shredded chicken on hand, no worries bro! You can make it EASY at home in 15 minutes!!

How to make shredded chicken: Bring a medium/large pot of water to a boil and add 1 teaspoon sea salt. Add chicken breasts to boiling water and simmer for 15-30 minutes until cooked through (no pink left!). Then remove chicken from water and shred between two forks. Viola! Shredded chicken.

SO easy, right!? Now, let the buffalo-veggie-or-chip-cheesey-sauce-dipping commence!

My sister and I have been doing a clean eating challenge this month. I know, you’re thinking, isn’t paleo clean eating??? Well, yassss…. but I like to bake cookies, you guys. And I love my vegan cheesecake bites! And I love tahini, and almond butter, AND ALMOND BUTTER! By the spoonful! So, we decided to keep it strictly protein, veg, and fruit this month and see how we fare. 🙂 Wish us luck!

What I realized is this: protein, protein, vegetables, and you know… more protein and vegetables. Basically, make sure you always have both on hand; preferably in an already prepared style that tastes like something edible and delicious, to avoid any childlike outbursts of tears and tantrum like behavior, due to lack of food. 🙂 Buffalo chicken dip got me covered.

    Hi there! I was hoping to make this tomorrow but I cannot find coconut aminos anywhere!! Do you think it would alter the recipe drastically if I didn’t add the aminos? Or should I wait to make the recipe another time when I do have them/find them?!

    I would like to try this, but i can’t seem to find the recipe for the Ranch seasoning. When I click on the link, it takes me to another page, but only with the buffalo cauliflower recipe. Can you help?

    Hi! Question — I have precooked shredded chicken, would it be okay if I used that? Should I cook it at a lower temp or for shorter?

      Hi Melanie, you could use that. I would just cook the peppers until they are soft enough to eat- or to your liking. 🙂 You could also grill the peppers before hand if you wanted?

      Hi Aja, you can’t really- unless you use dairy, because it will become really thin using another kind of milk. You can sub for mayo, but I can’t tolerate that much mayo, so its up to you.

      Hi Michelle, I don’t think so, coconut creamer is sweetened usually and that would taste weird, plus it’s not as thick of a consistency, so it won’t have the same consistency when cooked.

    I just made this for dinner tonight, and it was delicious! Put it on top of baked sweet potato, and had cucumber slices to dip in it, too. I didn’t have any Frank’s (and even if I did I thought it would be too spicy for my 3 year old) so I took a chance and subbed paleo ketchup for the hot sauce and it totally worked! This will certainly be a go-to from now on. Thank you!
