It's Superbowl Sunday! Although I wish the Saints were playing again this year and feel that they were ROBBED of being in this year, I am excited to go watch the game with our dear friends from Care Group. We are having a potluck of sweets and dips and all good football food, and I can't wait. I love snack foods...it's my favorite type of gathering because you get a great variety of lots of different foods. Chips and dips. Brownies. Cookies. Veggies and more dip. YUM! Can't wait!
Anyway, tonight I am bringing my new favorite dip: Buffalo Chicken Dip.
I have been slightly obsessed with Buffalo sauce since my last pregnancy. Jonathan and I even split some wings for lunch today after church. Anyway, I heard about this dip and tried my hand at it for the first time for a Christmas party. It was gone in a matter of minutes and I have been waiting for an excuse to make it again. I'm sure you and your friends will love it too!
Buffalo Chicken Dip
2 (8-ounce) cream cheese blocks, softened
1 cup Ranch dressing
3/4 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce
1 rotisserie chicken, deboned and chopped (or a package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked and chopped)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
chips or crackers for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, Ranch dressing and hot sauce until smooth. Fold in chopped chicken until combined. Pour into a greased baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Return to oven and allow to bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and dip is bubbly. Serve hot!
**** For the Christmas party, I served the dip with Fritos and I also cut up carrots and celery into sticks to serve with it. I thought this was a way to make it seem like Buffalo wings. Also, you could have a small dish of Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing for extra dipping.
