Texas-Perfect Buffalo Ranch Artichoke Dip

By Charlotte on February 10, 2013 6:50 AM

Most everyone has a favorite artichoke dip recipe. We love this new, buffalo wing sauce-inspired version because it has a Texas-perfect kick.

This recipe is based on one from Wish-Bone that I discovered in December. I decided to make it for the family Christmas Day because it sounded yummy and, even better when you're busy, had only four ingredients.

 

You need only 4 ingredients to make this simple-but-irresistible appetizer.

Plus, you can have this simple-but-irresistible appetizer in the oven in less than 10 minutes and serve it up about half an hour later.

 

This Texas-Perfect Buffalo Ranch Artichoke Dip was a real hit at our house during the holidays.

Since then, I've mixed it up several times, including New Year's Eve when it was my turn to cook for our friends David and Catherine Ross. (We've spent the holiday together for the last 20+ years, alternating between houses. Don't you just love tradition!?) Heck, I've even started keeping the ingredients on hand for spur-of-the-moment entertaining because this updated classic is a hit with anyone who appreciates a little heat!

Diabetes-Friendly Chicken Burrito Bowl

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.

Tips:

If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
