How to Serve this Dip
Pretty much anything goes with our ever-so-tasty buffalo chicken dip, but here are a few of our favorite pairings:
Veggies are one of the best ways to serve this delicious dip. Celery sticks, carrots, and bell peppers are all fantastic options. The crunchy texture complements the creamy dip in a super satisfrying way! This option is also a great way to keep this snack low-carb!
Tortilla chips, whole-wheat crackers, and pretzels, not only offer crunchy texture but a delightful flavor, as well. Any of these options will make your life super easy. Just open the bag or box, dump them into a chip and dip bowl, and serve!
Pita bread is another yummy way to enjoy this appetizer. The soft texture of the bread melds with the warm and creamy buffalo dip, creating an incredibly comforting treat.
If you have a little more time on your hands, you can also make your own chips! Our Baked Sweet Potato Chips with Rosemary and Sea Salt and our Baked Parmesan Butternut Chips are both wonderful, homemade choices!
You can even make this a main course and serve it over a bed of lettuce, in a sandwich, or in a wrap with some other veggies and whole grains to boost your intake of fiber and nutrients.
