Recipe: Buffalo Chikn Dip {VeganMoFo}

Last night was the 40th Birthday celebration for one of our awesome friends – a great time was had by all and I stayed up way past my bedtime.

Knowing I like to munch, I brought a snack to share. What to bring? I’ve seen a lot of Buffalo Dip at parties over the past few years, so I thought that might be a good dip to make vegan-friendly and share with a crowd. The verdict? No one knew it was meat & dairy-free until I told them – mission accomplished!

I served the dip layered (that’s how I’ve had it at parties), but I would also like to try this combined. Other variations: shred or chop the chicken strips, instead of keeping them whole.
