Do you guys love football season?

I do!! It’s basically one of my favorite times of the year for multiple reasons.

1. Great excuse to have wings and beer! They just seem to go together with football, like peanut butter and jelly.

2. Its the fall and fall is my favorite season.

3. I’m in a all ladies fantasy football league so its my chance to have that athlete competitive side in me come out. I do admit I get a little into it and when I lose its not a happy day.

Ok, now before you think what happened to Julie, I didn’t realize she was so passionate about football or was into fantasy football. This isn’t Julie, its Krista from Joyful Healthy Eats… I guess I should have said that up front… now ya know.

Anywho, besides all my excitement for football season I am also super pumped to share these Skinny Buffalo Dip Wonton Cups with you today!

I think I was first introduced to the famous Creamy Buffalo Dip at a Superbowl party a couple years back and I haven’t looked back since. The stuff is seriously addicting! But ohh so not good for you, tons of cheese and ranch and if you ask me .. kinda unnecessarily added. You can still have the same great “buffalo wing” taste with half the cheese and ranch.

How do I know this you ask?

Well, um… because of this recipe … duh!!! 🙂

What I love about these Skinny Buffalo Dip Wonton Cups is they are in bite-size form. So instead of taking a whopping scoop of Buffalo Dip and a mound of tortilla chips which could equal XXXXX calories … you have built in portion control with these babies. Score!!

And.. cecause of the decreased amounts of cheese and ranch dressing you won’t feel as guilty eating one or two or three or ok five of these! Double score!

So the next time you have people over for the big game be sure to whip these out and wow everyone with these Skinny Buffalo Dip Wonton Cups.

    These look perfect for any get together and I am pretty sure if I made them for game day, they would be devoured in no time!

    Maybe I shouldn’t admit I am not a football fan—most of the time. But when the University of Wash or the Seattle Seahawks are in upward mode and especially if they are heavy on a passing game, then I get pulled in. But I always love fall and I always love all the appetizers that pop out because it is football season. This recipe is a prime example.

  • Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction


    These would devoured at our house in no time! Perfect for snacking on during the game!
