Nashville Hot Chicken Dip

Y’all have obviously tried Buffalo Chicken Dip, right? Well what about a NASHVILLE HOT CHICKEN DIP?! Its pretty similar but just different enough to make your taste buds the happiest little guys around. With a spicy & creamy base, topped with chicken nuggets, a “Nashville hot drizzle”, bread & butter pickles, and scallions- it’s sure to be you’re new favorite dip.

This post is sponsored by Alpha Foods! If you haven’t heard of them, now you have! They make some of the MOST AMAZING frozen vegan products on the market, ranging from frozen burritos, tamales, pot pies, etc.- to chicken nuggets, and other vegan meats. And the quality is top notch. Even their frozen burritos when microwaved hold together, don’e explode, and the tortilla never gets that weird rubbery texture- plus they’re actually LOADED with filling.

You can find their products here https://alphaplantbased.com/, and I just want to give a huge thanks to Alpha for collaborating with me on this post and many more to come! I’m so excited to show y’all how easy it is to upgrade these frozen items into full blown meals.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe!

  • 4 8-ounce containers vegan cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 cup unsweetened plant milk + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, mixed (buttermilk)
  • ¼ cup + 3 tbsp Louisiana style hot sauce 
  • 1 tbsp + 1 ½ tsp agave 
  • 2 tsp + ½ tsp cayenne pepper 
  • ½ tbsp paprika 
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder 
  • Salt to taste 
  • 1 bag Alpha Foods Chikn Nuggets 
  • Bread and butter pickles 
  • Scallions
  • Chips, Carrots, Celery, Toasted Bread, etc. for dipping 

And here’s how to make it!

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix together your room temperature cream cheese & vegan buttermilk until smooth.  Then add in ¼ cup hot sauce, 1 tbsp agave, 2 tsp cayenne, ½ tbsp paprika, 1 tbsp garlic powder, and salt to taste.  Mix again, then transfer to your serving dish. 
  2. Cook up your nuggets according to package instructions & chop into quarters when they’re ready.  Add them on top of your cream cheese mixture.
