Craving hot wings? This healthier option, adapted from a Weight Watchers recipe, is an awesome alternative. And speaking of Weight Watchers, I always thought it was a crock; but, in the two weeks since I joined, I've lost 7 lbs. Now I hope they don't sue me for using their name. (And I did say, this recipe was ADAPTED, right?)
This recipe will stuff two bunches of celery; or one bunch with about a cup of the cream cheese mixture leftover for dip later in the week. It's great with carrots. In fact, I could pretty much dip anything in it! (Alec Baldwin's Balls, anyone?)
I found Frank's Red Hot Wings Sauce at Target next to the barbecue sauce. it's wonderful. But I did make half a batch without the sauce for the kiddos.
- 1 (8oz.) block Neufchâtel or low-fat cream cheese, softened
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup (4 oz.) blue cheese
- 1/4 cup (or less to taste) wing sauce, plus more drizzled on top
- Parsley, chopped (optional, for garnish)
Rinse and chop your celery into two inch pieces. In a small bowl, combine softened cream cheese, garlic, blue cheese, and wing sauce until smooth. Spread onto your celery stalks, drizzle with a little extra wing sauce, top with optional chopped parsley and enjoy. Place any remaining dip into a small bowl and serve with other types of veggies or hide and save for a late night snack.
