Every Monday on our Instagram stories, we share a super-easy, 7-ingredients-or-less recipe. Follow us for a new episode each week!

It’s game time, folks. With the Super Bowl less than a week away, we’re on the prowl for healthier versions of our favorite game day foods to serve at our viewing party. The current plan? To wow our guests with this healthier Buffalo chicken dip.

This recipe uses Greek yogurt and reduced-fat cream cheese to get the creamy texture and real blue cheese for the authentic Buffalo flavor. The whole thing comes together in about 30 minutes and goes great with chips or veggies. (Then again, everything goes well with chips and veggies.)
