So the Superbowl is right around the corner-do you have your game day snacks ready?  If not, don’t despair!  HH has you covered with the ingredients, and I have you covered with the yummy dip recipe.

This is a recipe I adapted from a version of crab dip I made a few years ago.  The difference is that there is hot sauce and cauliflower in this one, but don’t worry if you have a big group coming and not everyone thinks they love cauliflower dip for a football game.  It’s so tasty, and the cauliflower adds texture more than anything.  The buffalo sauce and the creaminess of the Greek yogurt and cream cheese are what you taste most strongly, and it’s delish!  It hits the craving for buffalo wings in a much healthier, less-calorie dense way.

To start, chop your cauliflower in half:

Then steam away!

While it’s steaming, mix up the rest of the ingredients:

Then chop the steamed cauliflower up into pieces as big as you want for your dip.  If you have people who might not be thrilled at the presence of cauliflower, you can always hide it by pureeing it.

Add the cauliflower to the bowl, and mix well:
