Buffalo Chicken Dip

My friend Jayme found this recipe and shared it with me.  It's a much requested recipe and dish for pitch-ins and gatherings.  Everyone who loves buffalo wings, loves this stuff!  The recipe suggests serving with chicken-flavored crackers and/or celery.  We usually use those giant Fritos.  At the end of parties, a spoon has been known to work as well.  It's easy to make, a great no-frill appetizer you can make and just put out.  Chris added some hot sauce called "Widow Maker" he recently got from our friends in Texas Chris and Kelly.  Just enough to give a little extra zing!


Buffalo Chicken Dip

2 10 oz. cans chunk chicken, drained
2 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 c. ranch dressing
3/4 c. pepper sauce such as Frank's Red Hot
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Heat chicken and hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through.  Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing.  Cook, stirring until well blended and warm.  Mix in 1/2 of the cheddar cheese and transfer the mixture to a slow cooker.  Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top, cover and cook on low setting until hot and bubbly.  Serve with celery sticks and crackers.
