Buffalo Chicken Dip

One of my favorite tailgate / pot luck dishes of all time is a warm, creamy buffalo chicken dip. It always looked and tasted so good that I was sure it was probably a complicated process to make it so good. That was until I tried making it. SO easy! And so good. The most difficult part is just waiting for the time it takes to cook before you can dig in!

Ingredients

1 rotisserie chicken, shredded

2 8-oz. packages cream cheese

1 cup ranch dressing

3/4 cup original Frank’s Red Hot sauce

Shredded Mexican cheese

Tortilla chips and celery, for serving

Directions

  1. Set oven to bake at 350 degrees F.
  2. Shred rotisserie chicken into a medium bowl.
  3. Mix with Frank’s Red Hot and ranch dressing until fully coated.
  4. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Combine hot sauce covered chicken with cream cheese until fully melted and combined (forms a creamy consistency with very little full white spots left!). Stir frequently to combine and avoid burning.
  5. Once fully combined, turn the stovetop off and transfer the mixture to a oven safe casserole dish. Sprinkle the top with a layer of shredded cheese.
  6. Heat in oven until cheese is melted to your liking (about 8-10 minutes).
  7. Remove from the oven and serve!
Dip should look like this on the stovetop before transferring to the oven!
Out of the oven! Love that cheesy top. Broil for a minute if you want the cheese to brown even more!
