The Best Ever Dairy Free Buffalo Chicken Dip

The Best Non-Dairy Buffalo Chicken Dip

I can’t believe it works as well as it does…truly!  But I’ve found it – the best dairy free buffalo chicken dip that you could ever ask for.  It’s soooo easy to make (I made it in my crock pot!) and you would never know it’s dairy free!  It’s JUST as good as classic buffalo chicken dip!

This stuff is perfect for game days, get togethers, or just cold days where you want to sit inside and veg out.  And it makes amazing leftovers! You can eat it as the fabulous chicken dip that it is…or you can add it to tacos for a fun change of pace.

If you’re looking for non-dairy appetizers, especially non-dairy game day appetizers, THIS IS IT. This recipe is such a crowd pleaser and I guarantee they won’t know it’s dairy free!

They’re perfect for getting excited in September and October, but really you’ll probably find yourself reading them all year long!
