Vegan Buffalo "Chicken" Dip

Every time I make this buffalo “chicken” dip for a party, there is not a single bite left. Non vegans can not believe this dip is actually vegan and aways marvel at how well the jackfruit mimics the texture of chicken. This classic dip is spicy, cheesy, gooey, and always a crowd pleaser. I also like to whip up a batch of this tasty dip for sandwiches or for my  Vegan Buffalo “chicken” bites !

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can jackfruit in brine

  • 1 8oz container vegan cream cheese

  • 3/4 cups of buffalo sauce (I use Franks)

  • 1/2 cup vegan mayo

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 2 tablespoons corn or tapioca starch

  • 1 plus 1/2 cups vegan cheddar shreds (like Follow Your Heart)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Drain jack fruit and chop the pieces, or shred them using you fingers into a medium sized bowl. The fruit pulls apart easily, and I find using my fingers easier than chopping.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients, except 1/2 cup of cheese, to the bowl and mix well.

  3. Transfer mixture to a small baking dish and top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.

  4. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until cheese on top is melty.

  5. Serve with bread, crackers, carrots, or celery sticks.
