I am not usually a ‘hot wing girl’, too much work for a little bit of meat. And I don’t care for hot-hot sauce nor blue cheese, but this recipe worked like magic and I loved it! A wonderful alternative over high-calorie appetizers or snacks and it takes care of those cravings with the burst of flavors.
Celery Buffalo Style
8 oz. neufchatel cheese*
5 oz. low fat blue cheese, crumbled
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. salt, or to taste
1 – 2 Tbl. Franks Hot Sauce
1 – 2 celery stalks, separated into ribs; cleaned, trimmed and each cut into 3 or 4 sections
In a small bowl, using a mixer mix the cream cheese, blue cheese, garlic, salt and hot sauce mix well to combine until smooth.
To serve, stuff celery with the cream cheese mixture and serve with extra sauce for guests who want a bit more spice.
*Neufchatel cheese has less fat than cream cheese and I think it has a better taste and consistency than fat free cream cheese
