Simple and Delicious Vegan BBQ “Chicken” Dip Recipe


When it comes to football and Super Bowl party food, I typically think of Buffalo wing flavored dishes.  In the past I’ve made Spicy Buffalo Carrot Fritters, Sweet & Spicy Buffalo Wing Popcorn, Easy Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and even Buffalo Roasted Chickpeas.

I had every intention on whipping up a dairy free and meatless Buffalo “Chicken” Wing Dip today BUT of course, life had other plans.  For those of you that know me well, you’ll know that I live literally practically in the middle of no where.  We have one chain supermarket, a smaller local grocery mart, Walmart, and by some stroke of luck a Green Planet health foods store….none of which are really stocked with what I need when making allergy friendly recipes. 

Still, I took my chances and headed to Green Planet  thinking that I could at least grab some dairy free/soy free cream cheese and some plain jackfruit but I was WRONG.  They did kindly offer to order the items I needed but in true Annmarie fashion, I waited until the last minute and had to work with what they had available. 

As I wandered the store with my creative cap on, I came across Bar-B-Que Jackfruit which immediately made a lightbulb go off.  Instead of making a Buffalo dip, I could make a BBQ dip! 

BBQ "Chicken' Dip! The perfect dairy free, gluten free and vegan alternative to a traditional cheesy, meaty dip! Made with Daiya vegan cheese, vegan mayo and jackfruit, this dip is sure to be a party pleaser that even carnivores will love!

To be honest, it’s been a long time since I’ve eaten BBQ anything.  For a while, I avoided barbecue sauce since it has a tomato base but after realizing that a lot of my issues are more motility based than anything (and with my upcoming surgery to fix it), I decided to kinda say screw it, go on the “YOLO diet” and give it a try!

Another confession, this is the first time that I have ever used jackfruit in a recipe.  Due to the fact that it’s hard AF to find around here, I haven’t really had the opportunity to do so.  I have eaten it before and knew that the texture is quite meaty and would work for something like a chicken replacement in this type of dish. 

Another product I found while perusing the aisles was something called Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Fabanaise. It’s like mayo but it’s vegan because it’s made with aquababa instead of eggs.  While I have been on a homemade mayo kick, all of mine are egg-based so I decided to give this a try with the goal of keeping the dish completely vegan.  

The result? This flippin’ delish dip that is so tasty even a carnivore will wanna dive in!

Oh my gosh, you made it vegan! It looks amazing! I love cooking with jackfruit and now that Upton's offers pre-seasoned jackfruit it makes it even easier! I used their curry version a couple weeks ago and it was really good.

I'm really lucky that Ralphs carries the Upton version and if I want to dig up plain jackfruit in a can (which is a ton cheaper) there is a Philipino market not too far away that has that. Trader Joes had it for a while too, but I'm not sure if they still do.
