Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

Celebrate the Super Bowl With Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo wings are an essential for just about any Super Bowl party, but it's hard to keep them warm, and I don't want my house smelling like fried food. So I was thrilled to find a buffalo chicken and cheese dip with the exact same flavors! The best part: you can make the recipe ahead of time and just warm it up in the oven just before the game starts. Bonus: if the dip needs a little more heat at halftime, just throw it in the microwave for a minute to bring it back to its creamy state.

Be sure to alter the recipe to suit your palate by picking your favorite variety of hot sauce. Serve this scrumptious spicy dip with chips or celery sticks for an even more authentic buffalo wing feel. Get ready for kickoff and keep reading for the recipe.

Buffalo Chicken Cheese Dip


  1. 2 (8 ounce) packages reduced-fat cream cheese
  2. 3/4 cup (6 ounces) cayenne pepper sauce (Crystal or Frank's RedHot)
  3. 1/2 cup ranch dressing or bleu cheese dressing
  4. 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cooked and chopped (3 to 4 chicken breast halves or about 3 cups chopped)
  5. 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or mozzarella

  3. Stir in chicken and about half of the cheddar cheese. Stir until combined.
