The buffalo flavor that we all know and love is typically made by combining vinegar, butter, and a cayenne pepper-based hot sauce. Skip the intense prep that buffalo wings require-- get all of the flavor you crave with a buffalo cheese ball. Prepared Buffalo wing sauce makes it easy to make and the blue cheese gives each bite an addictive richness. Serve while watching the next big game with your friends.
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
4 ounces blue cheese, at room temperature
4 ounces white cheddar, grated
1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot), divided
1/4 cup shredded chicken, cooked
1/4 cup diced celery
1/2 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
How to Make It
Combine cream cheese, blue cheese, and white cheddar in the bowl of a food processor; process until smooth.
Heat a medium, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup of buffalo sauce and chicken. Cook, stirring frequently, until sauce chicken absorbs most of the sauce, about 2 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
Stir chicken mixture, remaining ¼ cup Buffalo sauce, and celery into cream cheese mixture; mix until evenly incorporated. Scrape cream cheese mixture onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Using lightly moistened hands, shape cream cheese mixture into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until it can be easily rolled.
Spread crushed crackers evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Roll the cheese ball in crackers to evenly coat.
Place cheese ball on a serving platter; serve with celery and additional Ritz crackers.
