Healthier Buffalo Chicken Dip

I love this delicious appetizer! It's as healthy as it can get while maintaining the delicious flavor in tact. This dip is so excellent that Mike and I can't share a bowl together. We honestly have to scoop ourselves separate bowls to ensure we each get our "fair share" of dip!

Healthier Buffalo Chicken Dip
·1 - 8oz. package Neufchâtel cream cheese, softened
·½ cup peppercorn ranch fat-free dressing
·⅓ cup cayenne pepper sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot Sauce)
·1½ cups shredded, cooked chicken breast
·1 cup shredded colby jack cheese
·4 green onions, chopped

Preheat oven to 350˚. In a bowl, beat cream cheese with a mixer until smooth. Beat in ranch dressing and cayenne pepper sauce until well blended. Stir in cooked chicken and cheese.

Spread in an ungreased 8x8 baking dish and bake for 25 minutes, or until warm and bubbly. Stir and top with green onions. Serve with tortilla chips, gluten-free crackers, or vegetables.
