So a couple of years ago, my dear friend Cassie and I were invited to a party where we had to bring a dish. I went for some unmemorable dish, maybe sausage balls, or a berry trifle, but Cassie brought this killer chicken dip. Now this dish, was the first dish that was empty. People congregated around it like pigs at a trough! I had never seen anything like it. It’s this delightful mix of buffalo wings, cheese and ranch dressing. Granted, you can feel your arteries clogging as you eat it, but it’s sooo good! (My mouth is watering just thinking about it.) At that moment, I knew that a) I would never be able to compete with Cassie whenever that dish was invited, and b) I had to get the recipe. Since then I have brought it to Super Bowl parties, Family game nights, several football tailgating events and most recently our Election Day Party. And without fail, it took top prize. So super shout out thank you to Cassie’s mom’s friend who provided the recipe. I feel it only fair to pass along the recipe so that you too can be showered with praise at your next event. Drumroll please…
Buffalo Chicken Dip:
Boil chicken and then shred and put in the bottom of a casserole dish
Pour 12 oz bottle of your favorite hot sauce on top of chicken (Franks or Texas Pete’s)
Now here’s where the arteries start to clog.
In a pot, melt and 8 oz thing of cream cheese AND a bottle of ranch (or blue cheese if you prefer your wings with blue cheese). DON’T LET IT BURN, but melt it till it’s a liquid.
Pour cream cheese and ranch on top of the chicken and hot sauce.
Pour 2 cups shredded cheese on top.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until the cheese has completed melted. Pull out and grab your favorite chips. I prefer tostidos scoops…helps you get the good stuff on there!
So…happy cooking! If you have any go to recipes that you’d like to share, bring em on!
