And avoid cutting chicken into chunks, use two forks too shred chicken too absorb the flavor further and make a paste.
This was great, however to many calories for an appertizer. We are on the south beach diet and I hosted Father's Day this year which meant Ribs. I made this as an appertizer but I used neufchatel Cheese which is just like cream cheese, taste the same with less fat and calories. I also saw recipes that used Blue Cheese dressing in place of the Ranch. Next time I will try that in order to cut even more calories and fat. I only used 1/2 cup of hot sauce and then split the dip into two baking dishes. In one I added more hot sauce. This way I had Hot and Mild. I would serve it next time in a foudue dish to keep it warm as the cheese does get hard. Had a little left over the next day and added it to our scrambled eggs for breakfast. It was great!
This is so good. I did half the recipe in a pie plate. And instead of using 3/8 cup of hot sauce (for half recipe), I used 2/8 cup. It was enough for us. I used low-fat cream cheese. And reduced-fat cheddar cheese. We ate it with tostitos. Thanks A.Love. Made for PAC Spring 2009
This was FABULOUS! My friend and I made this and both agreed this would make a great pasta! I had never had Frank's before, and it was incredible! Doubled the amount of Frank's. Hubby wasn't a fan of the "hotness", so if you can't take the heat, stick the 3/4 cup.
