Our Favorite Buffalo Chicken Dip

"This has become one of my most requested dishes at family functions. I prepare it at home and just heat up in the microwave when I am ready to serve. I also adjust the amount of hot sauce depending on who will be there. Our family prefers it mild with only 1/2 cup of sauce."

  1. I brought this dip to a potluck in my family. It was a bit hit. Everyone was asking me about the recipe. They were so amaze to know it was only 5 ingredients. Thanks Tarynne :) Made for New Kids on the Block tag game
  2. I must admit that I just layered my ingredients and threw it in the oven, as I couldn't devote my attention to just the one thing! I also cut back the ranch dressing a bit, as 1 cup seemed like a lot to me....This is very good from the oven, but I'm sure it is GREAT on the stovetop. I'm going to tuck this away into my 'camping' cookbook, as we love our appys, and there is no oven available! Thanks for a great recipe, Tarynne!
