This buffalo "chicken" dip is easy and tasty
We just made a version of this buffalo “chicken” dip featuring artichoke hears. It’s easy and pretty good, especially since it’s dairy-free and vegan.
Definitely worth making for its simplicity and utility. Hopefully we’ll keep toying with it to make it even better.
Or watch us making it at 52:30 in our 3 Potluck Vitamix Recipes video alongside our artichoke dip and these awesome jackfruit sliders.

Useful tips for Buffalo “Chicken” Dip
We used Sweet Baby Rays buffalo.
In the video, we followed the Nora’s recipe which called for lemon juice. But next time (and in the listed instructions here), we’re using a an entire peeled lemon because the Vitamix can handle it, there’s some bonus nutrition, and makes for a brighter taste than squeezed lemon from a plastic bottle.
Frozen artichokes are fine — just don’t use the oil-marinated ones.
Stores in the fridge for a few days. Reheats in the microwave well.

A worthy recipe especially for its simplicity and utility. But if we’re calling it buffalo “chicken” dip, it’d be better with something that was closer to chicken texture than artichoke hearts. If I’m bringing it to a party, I’d consider add some plant-based chicken product (or just call it buffalo dip without mentioning “chicken”.
