Buffalo Chickpea Dip

Using chickpeas instead of chicken with a few lighter ingredients, this buffalo chicken dip is a must try!

Last weekend we wanted a buffalo chicken dip but we didn’t have any of the ingredients. I challenged myself to create on using my knowledge on the base of the recipe and what we had on hand.
This turned out so good!
