Super easy and delicious! My sister gave me this recipe. I made it for our Super Bowl party and it was great to snack on all day. I always use 1/3 less fat cream cheese, fat free ranch dressing, and 2% cheddar cheese and you'd never know the difference.
- 2 (10 ounce) cans canned chicken, drained
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup bottled ranch dressing
- 3⁄4 cup Frank's red hot sauce
- tortilla chips, for dipping
- Combine all ingredients in a crockpot on low to medium heat.
- Stir frequently as the cheese melts.
- Keep in the crockpot on low and serve with tortilla chips.
I wanted to use my new little crock pot so this is the recipe I chose. We LOVE Buffalo Chicken Dip! I halved the recipe and used a cooked chicken breast I shredded for the finest quality dip. There is a terrific restaurant nearby called Cabanas who are the only ones around to make this amazing dip. After analyzing it, we discovered they add a little parmesan cheese and just a smidgen of white vinegar to theirs, so that's exactly what I did. I added a tablespoon or so of grated parm, and about 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar and LO & BEHOLD--it tasted exactly like theirs! No more paying $7.99 for my bowl of Buffalo dip. I served it in a crock with warmed tortilla chips, and we were in heaven. Or Cabanas! Or Buffalo! Okay, we were still at home...
Really excellent. Everyone loved it! I used a small crock pot (3 QT), and everything fit exactly up to the top. Since it was going to be such a tight fit, I combined everything first in a pan and got it all mixed and let the cheese start to melt before transferring to the crock pot to finish. With a bigger crock pot, this would not be necessary. Even in a small crock pot, this makes *a lot* (3 quarts worth, to be exact), so next time I will make half the recipe but still in the smaller crock pot. Since I was taking this to a party, I went a little lighter on the hot sauce (more like 1/2 cup) and brought the bottle in case someone wanted it spicier. Even with 1/2 cup, it was not terribly spicy. Thank you for sharing this great recipe that is perfect for parties!
I used a rotiserrie chicken instead of canned and I had sour cream ranch on the side (didnt add it to the mix) - HUGE success, everyone loved it! Will definitely make it again and again :)
