What's in Keto Buffalo Cheese Dip
*Exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below.
How Do You Make Keto Buffalo Cheese Sauce
Heat a saucepan to medium and melt the butter.
Add in the heavy cream and stir to combine. The key to a smooth cheese sauce texture is to stir well after every addition.
Then the mascarpone cheese and stir again.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Add in the shredded cheddar. Once the cheese has been added, you'll want to keep an eye on it so it doesn't begin to stick to the bottom of the saucepan. Keep stirring until the cheese has completely melted.
Then whisk in the buffalo sauce.
And finally, to send the flavor profile of this sauce right over the top, whisk in the blue cheese dressing.
Mix until well combined and smooth. Remove from the heat.
That's it! So quick and easy and in just minutes, it's ready to serve with your favorite veggie or protein!
Store leftovers in the fridge for a few days or freezer. Reheating is easy either stove top or in the microwave. Add a tiny bit of hot water, whisk and it will return to it's original velvety texture!
If you'd like a thicker dip, add 2 additional ounces of the mascarpone cheese. You can substitute the mascarpone with cream cheese, but it will have a stronger flavor. If you sub, be sure to adjust the macros accordingly.

Is Buffalo Sauce Keto?
The zest in this Keto cheese sauce comes from Buffalo sauce.
