Substitutions for Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Dip
- This Keto Buffalo dip is so quick and easy but if you find yourself really short on time, you can use rotisserie chicken. The key is to look at the ingredients on the label of the chicken to make sure there isn’t added sugars or other non-Keto friendly ingredients.
- The type of cheese you use is completely a personal preference. Use Pepper Jack, Colby of any good melting cheese.
- Want even more heat? Add some sliced jalapenos for extra kick. You can use fresh jalapeno or the pickled jarred kind. Either one will work great!
