Entry #4

Buffalo Chicken Dip


Chicken – either canned or pulled chicken, about 10 to 16 oz

1/2 cup of buffalo sauce (Archie Moores is my favorite but Franks Wing Sauce is good too)

1 block of cream cheese

1/4 cup of ranch dressing

1/4 cup of blue cheese

1 cup of shedder cheddar (I prefer extra sharp)

1/3 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)

Pretzel chips or sliced carrots/celery


Heat the chicken with the hot sauce until bubbly over medium heat.  Add the cream cheese and stir until melted through.  Add in dressings (either both or one but totaling about 1/2 cup) Stir well and add cheese once mixture is hot enough to melt cheese, usually only takes a minute or so.  Mix cheese until fully melted, only add mozzarella cheese if you prefer the dip to be gooey.

Taste and season to your liking, I usually add more wing sauce at this point.  If it’s too spicy for your liking, add in some more ranch or blue cheese dressing.

Keep on low heat or transfer to a crockpot to keep warm as this dip tastes best hot.

Serve with pretzels rods, pretzel crisps or carrots and celery.
