buffalo chicken dip

This buffalo chicken dip is…..ah-mazing, you guys! It’s so easy and quick to take to any get together or party.

i need to give a shout out to the amazing kathryn mooney for this one.  she has given me this recipe…probably 4 or 5 separate times!! pat used to live with kathryn’s fiance, morgan.  kathryn is a heck of a good cook and can bake ANYTHING.  (ice cream cake anyone??) she really inspired me on the hundreds of nights we have hung out together.  i would always beg her to make this on weekends…and she always would.  then, once i started attempting to cook on my own…this was one of the first things i tried.  every time i would go to make it…i would have to text her again and have her give me the recipe…again.  literally 4 or 5 times.  never wrote it down.  i’m the cooking virgin, remember? so kathryn…i’m finally writing it down!!

everyone has probably had this dip.  if you haven’t…MAKE IT TONIGHT.  oh my goodness it is so good.  there are lots of versions floating around the internet…i think this is the easiest and the best.  lots have layering…too complicated. lots have other ingredients, like blue cheese or baked chicken…too complicated. this version is sure to taste amazing, make your cooking life super simple, and tempt you to overeat.  right up my alley.

buffalo chicken dip

so here are the very very complicated instructions:

1. mix all the ingredients together.  2. bake it.  3. eat it.

I make mine in a crockpot...great for taking to a party!
    i'll have to try that. that sounds like it would be super easy and very good. and would stay warm that way for parties!

    The "regular" size...I'm guessing the medium size at the store. Hope that helps!
    the hot sauce size depends on how spicy you want your dip. also if you like replace the mexican cheese with velveeta melts perfectly n really good.
What temp do you bake this at?

    Wow I'm sorry!! 350F. Thanks for catching that!
      Thanks! I assumed it was probably 350F. I made it last night for the Superbowl. It was SO good! I'm secretively glad I took it to a party because otherwise I would have eaten half of it myself in one sitting. Thanks for sharing!

Can I cook this in a crockpot?
    Becky Hardin
    I've never cooked it in a crockpot, but I'm sure you could. You would want to have all the ingredients mixed together well and then put in the crockpot on high until its melty, and then on low while you serve it. I would think on high for about an hour but that's a guess. Hope you love it!
