Today’s post is sponsored by my friends at Cabot!

I’m always down to make healthier versions of my favorite foods, as long as they’re still delicious and maintain resemblance of the original dish. For example, I’m down to use cauliflower or mini peppers instead of tortilla chips as the base of nachos, but they still have to be seriously cheesy, or it’s just not a nacho!

Last fall, I created Mini Pepper Nachos for those that wanted a low carb option to eat for dinner or snack on during game day. Now, I’m excited to introduce cauliflower nachos on the blog! If you love roasted cauliflower, you’re going to love these nachos!

Cauliflower is tossed in olive oil and taco seasoning then roasted in the oven for 15 minutes. After the cauliflower is roasted, it’s topped with red onions and jalapenos, then loaded up with shredded Cabot Pepper Jack Cheese. The nachos are then placed back in the oven until the cheese gets nice and melty!

After the nachos come out of the oven, you can toss any and all of your favorite toppings on top! Avocado, yes please! Fresh Pico De Gallo, sign me up! Creamy Chipotle Sauce, I’m in!

The cauliflower is seriously filling, so you can easily eat these nachos as a meal. They’re also great for a crowd! Serve them as a low carb party snack or appetizer at your next BBQ or fiesta! Add a Watermelon Jalapeno Margarita and really get the party started!

Being born and raised an Oklahoma girl, there’s not much I love more than a cheeseburger and queso dip.

In Oklahoma if you order queso, you’re basically ordering a nacho cheese dip. I found out very quickly when I moved to San Diego that California Mexican restaurants consider queso something totally different.

I throw a lot of parties. Let’s be honest, I write a food blog for a living and love to play hostess so throwing parties is kind of my thing.

Twice a year my parties are taken to another level. Once at my Christmas/Birthday Cocktail Party, then again 2 months later at my annual Super Bowl Party.

For this years Super Bowl Party I decided to create a “Taco Bar” and serve four crock pots filled with delicious taco fillings including Buffalo Chicken, Chipotle Honey Pulled Pork, Vegetarian Fajita and Pineapple Sriracha Tri Tip.

Italian Buffalo Chicken Dip

Italian Buffalo Chicken Dip combines layers of cheese with shredded chicken tossed in buffalo sauce & Italian dressing, topped with pepperoncinis.

Italian Buffalo Chicken Dip

Today I have another new recipe from my Little Italy Housewarming Party. These days I couldn’t possibly throw a party without a recipe involving buffalo sauce!

For this party I transformed my beloved Buffalo Chicken Dip into an Italian masterpiece!

Italian Buffalo Chicken Dip

I started by replacing the original cheeses of cheddar and blue with mozzarella and parmesan.

I also added Italian dressing to the buffalo chicken for an extra Italian kick!  I then topped the dip with sliced pepperoncinis for a bit more spice!

Italian Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Italian dressing
  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1/4 cup sliced pepperoncinis

Start by pressure cooking then shredding the chicken breasts.  Next, toss the chicken with the buffalo sauce and Italian dressing.

Begin putting the dip together by placing the cream cheese in the bottom of a deep casserole dish. I used a 2 quart casserole dish which is perfect for this recipe.
