I was home alone last night for dinner and was trying to come up with something fast and easy. I didn’t want red meat, wasn’t in the mood for fish but knew I couldn’t order a pizza either. I was jonesing for something spicy. What I came up with was perfect! It was ready in under 5 minutes, under 400 calories and it was yummy! I made my healthified buffalo chicken dip but instead of eating it with tortilla chips I made some instant mashed potatoes with the help of my dear pal, Betty Crocker.
2 cans 97% fat free chicken breast drained
2 tbsp. fat free ranch
2 tbsp. reduced fat cream cheese
¼ cup 2% shredded cheddar
Hot sauce to taste (I use 1-2 tbsp.)
Mix all of these ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Stir and continue heating in 30 second increments until warm and gooey. Meanwhile, boil 2 cups of water on the stove. Once boiling, remove from heat and add the pouch of potatoes. Fluff with a fork.
Mix 1/3 of the potatoes and 1/3 of the buffalo chicken together in a dish and dive in. So tasty! You can always add more hot sauce, salt, pepper, etc. if needed. And I have leftovers for lunch too. This was too easy and yummy (not to mention cheap) to not make it again.
