Nothing screams tailgate food like Buffalo chicken everything. This keto buffalo chicken dip checks all the boxes for flavor, creaminess, crave-worthiness, and low-carb. It’s super easy to prepare, too. Just prep for 30 minutes and then let it bubble away in your slow cooker until game time.
For tasty low-carb dippers to replace chips, I opt for celery stalks, carrot planks, sliced radishes, and halved mini sweet peppers (adorbs). For some serious cheese-on-cheese enjoyment, dip with HighKey Cheese Crunch Everything Spices flavor for an ultra-protein packed, keto-friendly snack.
My favorite parts of the chicken to use are the legs and thighs, which are extra juicy and flavorful. Or use the chicken breasts, if you prefer.
