Whenever there is hot sauce and ranch (or blue cheese) dressing, my response is always "buffalo it."
Salad. Quesadillas. Sandwiches. Pasta.
Sometimes buffalo chicken is all you want. Without the messy bones or sauce.
And that's where buffalo chicken dip comes in. Put all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and go to town. And then use vegetables, pretzels, chips or even a spoon to shovel the gooey mess into your mouth.
What You Need
1 8oz block of cream cheese, I used the reduced fat kind
1/2 cup ranch dressing....love the bacon ranch dressing from Safeway
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
1 12oz can of chunk chicken, drained, chunks broken into small pieces
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
blue cheese crumbles for garnish
What You Do
Combine chicken and buffalo sauce and heat through in a skillet until warmed through. Break up any of the big chunks of chicken. Stir in the cream cheese and ranch dressing. Continue to stir until it's all cheesy and warm. Add the shredded cheese. Stir until melted. Pour it into a shallow microwave safe container,sprinkle the blue cheese and warm in the microwave until the blue cheese is melted.
If you're traveling with the dip, as I did, simply put in a microwave safe dish or plasticware after adding the cheddar cheese. Keep it in the fridge until you're ready to go, then microwave it when you get to your destination.
What's your favorite dip?
