Traeger Smoked Buffalo Cream Cheese

Smoked cream cheese took the internet by storm in the last year or two, and for good reason. It is delicious, simple to make, almost entirely hands-off, and people LOVE it. This version is a spicy take on the incredible buffalo sauce that we all know and love!

Buffalo smoked cream cheese is great as a dip, sandwich spread, or as a base for other recipes too. You could mix some into our Buffalo Mac and Cheese and make it even creamier. You could make some Panko Chicken and use that as a vehicle to get this to your face too. We’re not judging.
