Buffalo chicken dip is always a hit at every party. This dip tastes just like hot wings without the mess, and without the work. Bring this to your next party or tailgate party.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
What do I love about this easy Buffalo Chicken Dip? Well, I simply love the flavor of hot wings, but if you have folks, sometimes wings are just a little too messy to make. With this easy dip you can have all of these flavors without all of the work.
My big secret to this recipe is to use Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I don’t often call out specific brands, but on a sauce for wings, Frank’s is my go to sauce. Frank’s Red Hot Sauce is very well balanced with just the right amount of heat. It’s not too spicy, but it has some heat.
If you like this dip, you may want to try some of the variations in this buffalo chicken dip. For example, if you love the flavor of blue cheese, be sure to swap out the Ranch dressing for some blue cheese dressing. You could also toss in about 1/3 of a cup of blue cheese crumbles to the recipe. You can also swap out the Cheddar cheese for Monterey Jack cheese.
You may want to use the dip to top nachos, or you may want to stuff the buffalo chicken dip into wontons that you cook up.
I hope you give this recipe a try soon.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
- 10 ounces chicken can use canned chicken
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 cup Franks hot sauce
- 1/2 cup bottled ranch salad dressing
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Microwave cream cheese until soft. Blend in other ingredients, breaking up chicken. Mix until smooth. Place in ovenproof dish.
- Bake at 350 until bubbly-about 25 minutes. Now you can do a lot of variations in creating this buffalo chicken dip, for example,
- I like to simply boil up a few chicken breasts in place of the canned chicken breasts as suggested in this recipe. When you cook up your own chicken breasts, you can use organic meat if you like, and you don't have to worry about the salt that canned chicken breasts may be processed with.
- You may have some left over chicken in your refrigerator, so you may want to use what you already have on hand.
