Buffalo Chicken Dip

This recipe is super simple and super yummy! I love making it for Sunday football games or parties. Buffalo Chicken Dip is a mixture of cream cheese, chicken, ranch dressing, Colby Jack cheese, and Frank’s RedHot Original sauce. You can used canned chicken for this recipe, but I’ve found that boiling and shredding fresh chicken tastes WAY better. You could also use leftover rotisserie chicken. It all depends on what you prefer and how much time you have! Once your chicken is cooked and shredded, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Once it’s preheated, add 8 oz of cream cheese to a glass baking pan. I prefer to use a Pyrex 9×13 baking dish. Let the cream cheese melt for about 5-10 minutes so it’s easier to stir. Once the cream cream cheese is melted, add a 1lb of chicken to the melted cream cheese and coat evenly. Use a silicone spatula to stir so the cream cheese and chicken won’t stick to the spoon as much.

Pour in 1/2 cup of Ranch dressing, 1/2 cup of Frank’s RedHot Original and 8 oz of Colby Jack cheese and stir until it is mixed thoroughly. Bake this at 350 for 20 minutes. Then, top with the other 8oz of shredded Colby Jack cheese and bake for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Let it cool for a bit and enjoy with chips or celery sticks. I prefer celery sticks because I love celery with actual wings. Plus, it makes it feel like I’m being a tiny bit healthy.

*A bonus tip that I learned from Jesse is to use a vegetable peeler and peel the stringy part from the back of the celery. It makes it way easier to eat!*

This dip is always a huge crowd-pleaser and I make it a lot for parties or game days. It’s not overly spicy thanks to the ranch and all the cheese, so even people that don’t like spicy foods should enjoy it.
