The bold and the buffalo— this dip has it all. Thanks to cottage cheese and Greek yogurt, it’s laden with velvety protein. And thanks to hot sauce and cayenne, it’s brimming with fire… and will be the object of your desire.

I know cottage cheese can be polarizing—I looove it, Ian hates it. If you’re on the fence like my husband, let me assure you that you cannot taste the cottage cheese in this flavorful dip. However, you can also swap the cottage cheese for part-skim ricotta if that sounds like a better option. You can also lower the heat by omitting the ground cayenne… or dial it wayyyy up by adding more. Oh, and any favorite hot sauce will work!
