It appears that Buffalo Chicken Dip is one of the most popular recipes on our site with over 27 versions submitted by the MyRecipes audience. There's certainly a lot of "buzz" about this dip, so I thought I'd better join the crowd and make it for the Super Bowl Party this weekend. But first, a trial run.
After doing a bit of research on the variations, I went with this version:
2 (12.5-ounce) cans of chicken breast (drained)
1 (8-ounce) package 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup light blue cheese dressing
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (not pre-shredded)
1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Frank's)
I combined all of these ingredients and spooned into a small baking dish, and baked at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
The verdict: Super easy. Super good. Perfect for Super Bowl. It's a bit on the spicy side for me, but that's a good thing so I won't eat too much. If you like chicken wings with hot sauce, you'll love it. One person who submitted their recipe called it "runny-nose-good". Enough said, but that's a great description!
I will take this to the Super Bowl party and serve it with both crackers and celery sticks. The celery probably helps a bit with the heat --just like it does when you eat spicy wings.
Let's have a little Super Bowl challenge of our own: Which version of Buffalo Chicken Dip do you make and which version is the best? Blue cheese or ranch dressing? Cheddar, mozzarella, or blue cheese? Canned chicken or not? We've got 27 different versions on MyRecipes, so pick one of those, or share your own. Ready, set, go!
