190mg of sodium per teaspoon of Franks Red Hot. I made a double batch following instructions. Then I made a test batch with Gringo Bandito Original hot sauce and Fresh Blue Cheese Dressing(Maria's). Even my wife who does not like Blue Cheese dressing prefered the test batch. ONLY 25mg of sodium per teaspoon of Gringo Bandito but it is pricey. We were using Ken's Steakhouse Buttermilk Ranch for the double batch. The amount of grease floating on top of the Ken's batch was amazing. We will try a fresh ranch next time and see if it solves the grease problem and Gringo wins the taste salt contest hands down. Only three stars with Franks. I failed to compare sodium levels on the dressings.

I prefer to mix the cheese in rather than layer it on top. It is difficult to dip with the layer of melted cheese on top. Delicious either way, definitely a crowd pleaser.

I love this dip, and make it often. It is very popular wherever I take it! I have also made a crock pot version by mixing everything together and warming in a crock pot until cheeses are melted.

I always try to cut the fat....so I just used a red pepper humus and put rotisse chicken ( you can add some spice to chicken if you like...garlic or hot pepper sauce)...then stir in humus and dip...it is not as good but much better for you...this is such a good tip..I could not resist passing it along...use celery or pita or crackers to dip....

I do this but I make a huge pan and use a shredded rotisserie chicken a full jar of Frank's original hot sauce and let the chicken marinate in the sauce for several hours.... then pour it over the spread out cream cheese then layer (w a fresh jar from the cold section of dressing) blue cheese and then shredded cheese then bake

We love this dip at our house. My nephew likes me to make it and then he puts in a tortilla and makes burritos with it. **Alexis, - I toss my chicken in the buffalo sauce first then add it to the pan. That way all the chicken is coated. Then I continue layering like the directions say but omitting the buffalo sauce.

I’m a little disappointed with how my dip turned out. I followed the directions, but my final product didn’t looked as mixed as the picture displayed for this recipe. I had to mix it myself, which wasn’t a huge deal, I was just a little nervous as I was expecting my finish product to look almost the same as the picture displayed. Aren’t I supposed to layer all the ingredients, or am I supposed to mix some together before putting them in the pan? Either way, it tasted fine!

I love this dip! But I just throw all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat it up. So fast and good! Club crackers are our favorite thing to eat it with. And I get canned Costco chicken instead of fresh just to save on time. Tastes just as great!

Has been requested at many parties in our group. I mix everything together with some reserved cheese for the top. Awesome!
