  1. I’m so excited to see buffalo chicken dip on here! I have my own recipe which is probably super unhealthy so I can’t wait to try the lightened up version!

  2. What brand of lite blue cheese dressing do you use?

  3. fat free ranch is less points than light dressing. Do you know what the smart points value would be if I substituted?

    • I’m sorry, I don’t! You’d have to run it through the recipe builder with whatever brand of ranch you’re using.

  4. I made this a few weeks ago and it was awesome! I made a few substitutions. Great Value (Walmart’s brand) has fat free cream cheese, Wish Bone has fat free blue cheese dressing, and Kraft has fat free shredded cheddar cheese making it 1 SmartPoint per serving!!

  5. I substituted as Karen did with fat free and came up with 1 sp as well. Thanks

  6. Did using Fat Free items effect the taste??

  7. This recipe says “yield 12” does that mean there are 12- 1/4 cups? That seems impossible. That means 3 cups and I just made this recipe but it doesn’t look to be 3 cups.

    It is delicious btw! Ty for sharing!

  8. Can we use substitute the blue cheese for something else 

  9. I make this dip all the time but without the cheese. You won’t miss it and will drop the points even more. It’s what all my friends expect me to bring to all parties. Super easy to make with the canned chicken from Costco. Can throw it together in minutes!
