Buffalo Chicken Dip

Getting ready to ring in the new year next week. Here is a fun little snack to help keep you awake.

Buffalo Chicken Dip


1 (10 ounce) can chunk chicken, drained (you could also cook and shred chicken breast)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Ranch dressing
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons pepper sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot®)
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 bunch celery, cleaned and cut into 4 inch pieces
1/2 (8 ounce) box chicken-flavored crackers

  1. Heat chicken and hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. Cook, stirring until well blended and warm. Mix in half of the shredded cheese, and transfer the mixture to a slow cooker. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top, cover, and cook on Low setting until hot and bubbly. Serve with celery sticks, crackers, chips or whatever else you enjoy for dipping.
You may want to start out with less of the hot sauce. Especially if you are making this for kids. Then add more depending on what your taste buds prefer. Remember you can always add more, but you can't take it out :) Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

I have also heard that some people switch blue cheese salad dressing for the ranch. So that might be worth trying if you are a blue cheese kinda gal... err or guy.
