Lulu’s Famous Buffalo Chicken Dip

Put this on the list of food I could eat every day for the rest of my life!  This is a house favorite for us because its super freaking YUM-MY.  So much so that our pup, Tito, tries to sneak bites while we’re not looking (lucky for us he’s not very sneaky).

We usually see this dip every weekend during the fall as a tailgate appetizer, but today it’s being made for a New Years Eve party we’ll be attending!  Between NYE celebrations, and football playoff season, now would be a perfect time to give this recipe a try! Plus I can pretty much guarantee you this will be the crowd favorite.

It’s really simple to make and the two different methods of cooking make it versatile to better fit your schedule.  For today’s Buffalo Chicken Dip, I made it on the stovetop before baking it in the oven for 15 min.

The other option is in the slow cooker, which is SO FREAKING EASY it’s crazy.  I have done both ways, and they turn out just as addicting whichever way you decide.  For the slow cooker option, just dump all your ingredients in and set on HIGH for 40-45 min, stirring periodically.  Once all ingredients are melted and blended together, then you can set the temp to WARM and leave in the slow cooker for people to serve themselves.  So easy right?!

If using stovetop, I like to melt my cream cheese, hot sauce, ranch and cheese together to create the sauce, before mixing in my shredded rotisserie chicken.  Once everything is blended, I transfer to a greased baking dish and top with some extra cheese!

Can’t wait for you guys to give this classic recipe a try, you will not regret it!  And don’t forget to grab a bag of chips, or some celery sticks to scoop it with!
