Even though the football season is about half over, I had to share this dip recipe that is a favorite when we gather with friends to watch the games. Without fail, I am asked to bring Buffalo Chicken Dip when we get together. I have been told that my version tastes better than any other they have had. My secret…sharp cheddar. Honest truth. I use sharp cheddar in almost everything the calls for cheese and it does make a big difference.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Ingredients:

4 boneless chicken breasts, about 2 to 3 pounds

12 ounce bottle of Franks Red Hot Sauce

8 oz of cream cheese

12 or 13 oz jar of Blue Cheese dressing, found in produce section

8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Directions:

1. Boil or bake chicken. Cool until it can be handled and chop into bite sized pieces.

2. Place chicken in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Pour entire bottle of hot sauce over chicken and toss until chicken is completely coated

3. In a medium saucepan, melt cream cheese over medium heat. Once melted, add dressing and combine. Pour over chicken and spread to cover all of it.

4. Top with grated cheese.

5. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and it is bubbly.

This dip goes wonderful with chips, crackers, carrots, or celery. My preference is Tostitos Scoops. They just hold so much dip!

There are a few other ways you can make this. It goes great in a crock pot. Just dump everything in and turn in on low. Be sure your chicken is cooked first.

You could also mix the chicken, hot sauce, and cream cheese mixture together. Fill the Tostitos Scoops with the mixture. Top with a little bit of cheese and pop them in the oven until the cheese is melted.
