Can you make this dip ahead of time?
This white bean buffalo dip reheats well but is best served immediately. We snack on leftovers through the week with crackers to dip and even put it over toasted bread as a spread.
Can I use other types of beans?
Yes! This recipe calls for 2, 15oz. cans of great northern white beans. You could substitute with cannellini or even black beans. This recipe is vegetarian but you can add chicken or ground beef if desired or check out this Greek Yogurt Buffalo Chicken Dip.
Does this dip taste like Greek yogurt?
Not even the slightest bit. The cheese, buffalo flavor and beans blend very well with the Greek yogurt. There is no “tang” from the yogurt at all in this white bean buffalo dip.
What if I don't want to use buffalo sauce?
You can omit entirely from this white bean buffalo dip recipe. I would suggest adding a bit more garlic than the recipe calls for and some salt in place of the sauce. You could also add some powder ranch seasoning for a new flavor.
Ingredients and Substitutes:
These are the main ingredients and substitutions. See recipe card below for full ingredients list and instructions for White Bean Bufflo dip.
White Beans: this recipe calls for 2 cans of Great Norther White Beans. You can substitute with any white bean or even black beans. Just drain and rinse the beans before using.
Cream Cheese: to limit the fat this recipe calls for 1/3 less fat cream cheese, you can use your favorite.
Cheese: I am using shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese. You can use your favorite cheese but do note that the lower the fat of the cheese the less melty it gets so I would not suggest substituting all the cheese out for low fat. Alternatively you could use less with a combination of laughing cow cheese wedges and cheese flavored seasoning. I have not tested that though.
Greek Yogurt: Fage is my favorite nonfat plain Greek yogurt to cook with. I find the taste is more subtle than others and mixes great in savory dishes.
Hot Sauce: this recipe calls for Franks Red Hot Sauce, you can use your favorite hot sauce in place of Franks.
Green Onions: load in the chopped green onions in this one or omit entirely.

Add the smooth bean mixture to a pan over medium. Add the can of whole beans. Once the mixture is hot and bubbly add the cheese. Stir in to melt completely.
Finally, add the green onions, mix together and serve.
