Tutorial Tuesday: Buffalo Chicken Dip

Tutorial Tuesday: Buffalo Chicken Dip

My husband LOVES spicy food, and he needed to have Buffalo Chicken Dip for watching the Super Bowl, so here is our recipe (OK, it was's recipe first!) with pictures!

cooked chicken, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, hot sauce, ranch dressing and chips for dipping!

Begin by placing two bricks of softened cream cheese into your mixer. My bricks were pretty soft, but not soft enough and some of my liquids splashed out when I turned my machine on. Next time I will not only fully soften my cream cheese, but I will also cut them into cubes before placing them into the mixer!

Add 1 cup of ranch dressing... homemade is the BEST!

Next, add 3/4 cup of hot sauce. I used Frank's Red Hot, and a 5oz bottle was the equivalent to 3/4 cup!

Mix your ingredients well! At this point in the making, my pansy little taste bud self was terrified to taste this mix... its bright orange and s.p.i.c.y.!!!

Now its time to add the chicken. Mix well.

I lightly sprayed a 9X9 casserole dish and evenly spread the mixture inside. Bake at 350* for 15 minutes.

While your dip is baking, shred 1 to 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese.

After pulling your dip out of the oven, sprinkle the top with your shredded cheddar cheese and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese has fully melted!

Serve with chips and a TALL glass of water! In all honesty, my eye lids were fluttering from the spice, this recipe, as is, is NOT for the faint of heart! You could easily reduce the hot sauce (or omit completely... wink!) for a more palatable kick! Enjoy!

Recipe Recap:
10 ounces of shredded chicken
2 bricks of cream cheese
1 cup of Ranch salad dressing
3/4 cup of hot sauce
1- 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese

Yum----my family loves this dip! We call it "crack dip" because it's so addicting!


I absolutely adore buffalo chicken of ANY kind, so I'm sure I will love this! Thanks for the GREAT recipe!


Laura - I do this all the time too - I melt everything together in a skillet then throw it in a crock pot w/ cheese on top! Keeps it warm!

SOOOO good!


That sounds like an awesome dip. How do you make homemade ranch?

Laura Webber

Thanks for the affirmation that this is a yummy recipe!

I make homemade Ranch with mayo, buttermilk and a packet of Hidden Valley seasonings- but beware, you'll NEVER eat bottled Ranch ever again!


This also good with Franks Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce instead of just regular Red Hot. The whole concoction is great wrapped and baked in crescent rolls!

My family loves this recipe...for dinner. ;-) I serve it with carrot and celery sticks, and large glasses of milk (great for off-setting the HEAT!). My recipe uses blue cheese dressing instead of ranch, just 1 block of cream cheese, and the cheddar is mixed in with everything else.
Baked in crescent rolls!? Yum-O! I will have to try that.


Ha - I just made this same dip last week. It seems like all the ingredients had sales and coupons lately making it a cheap snack!


lol your's was probably really hot since that Frank's says X-tra hot!

Laura Webber

Hi Kim,
I never even noticed that it was the Extra HOT variety... I wouldn't dare eat even the tame kind!


HA HA wimp! :-)

Laura Webber

Ahem, I prefer pansy!;)
