I received this recipe for buffalo chicken dip from my cousin about three years ago and it has been delighting friends and family ever since. It’s super easy, perfect for parties or just hanging out with friends, and I have yet to meet a single person who does not love it.
The secret to this dip is to make sure you use Frank’s Red Hot sauce. It has a tasty balance of heat and flavor. In fact, Frank’s has their own version of this on their website here, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this is where the recipe originated. I guess you can say I adapted this recipe from the Frank’s version, even though that isn’t where I originally got it (I am assuming my cousin probably got it there to begin with!). However, I make mine with cheddar cheese, ranch dressing, and way more Franks red hot sauce! Here is how I make it:
Prep Time: Seriously, about 3 minutes. You take the ingredients out of the package and put them in your crock pot. That’s about it!
Cook Time: 1 hour to however long your party lasts.
- 2 8-oz packages cream cheese, softened
- 2 12-oz cans of chunk chicken
- 1 cup ranch dressing
- 1 package shredded cheddar cheese (about 2 cups)
- Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (do NOT use Tabasco!)
- Scoops tortilla chips
