Buff Chick Dip (from Hungry Girl)

I did this dip for a friend get-together late this afternoon. Oh. My. Gosh. It's FABulous!! It's from the new Hungry Girl 1-2-3 Recipe Book. OK here's the recipe as written by HG:

8 oz. fat free cream cheese
1/2 cup Frank's Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup fat free Ranch dressing
1/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
Two 10 oz cans of 98% fat free chunk white chicken breast in water, drained and flaked

Place cream cheese in lg microwave safe bowl and stir until smooth. Mix in Frank's RedHot sauce, mozzarella, ranch, and yogurt. Stir in chicken until thoroughly combined.

Microwave 3 minutes. Stir and then microwave for an additional 2 minutes or until hot. Enjoy!


Ok here's what I did:

One 8 oz tub of lowfat cream cheese, room temp
1/4 cup Frank's Redhot Buffalo Wing Sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup lowfat Ranch
1/4 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt

I left off the chicken completely because two of us are vegetarians. Then I substituted lowfat instead of fat free for the cream cheese and Ranch dressing. I would just rather not have food than to have the fat free versions of those items. Then. THIS is MOST important...... I used HALF of the amount of Frank's sauce and it was just right. HALF.

OK this is the BEST dip for fresh celery and salt free tortilla chips on the PLANET. I bet it would be great with chicken too.
