Keto Buffalo Chicken Dip

Must Try

Lolita Carrico
A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Three years later, she has maintained a 55-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

We’re big on chicken wings in our home – they are a staple for Sunday movie night and when watching basketball games. I also love to make hearty dips – beyond salsa, hummus and guacamole which are always perfect snacks, sometimes we want something a bit more filling and substantial to fill us up between meals and when just lounging at home. On keto, dips can be tricky — some have sugar snuck in but more of the time, the “dippers” – like pita bread, tortilla chips and bread, are the big no-nos with dips so usually keto folks need to opt out. Not with this amazing Keto Buffalo Chicken Dip! This dip is perfect with celery but doesn’t make you feel like you’re “dieting” (which for some reason, is the natural reaction when someone is eating celery is to?assume they’re on a diet! I happen to love celery!). So, while there are many variations of Keto Buffalo Chicken Dip, I love this one because I combine a two hot sauces which adds a bit more tang (though you can always just use one hot sauce) and I top it with fresh cilantro for another delicious flavor and hint of freshness.

The lazy cook in me does all of this in a small 5″ – 6″ cast iron so I can take it from stove to oven to serve — however you can use a regular saucepan on the stove and then transfer to a small baking dish to finish off in the oven.

I also made some keto nacho chips using Folios Cheese Wraps in Cheddar, and popping them in the microwave for 2 minutes and cutting them into triangles. Delish!
