Creamy Buffalo Chicken Dip

This slightly spicy dip cleverly captures the flavor of buffalo chicken wings. Using canned chicken adds to the convenience. —Allyson, DiLascio, Saltsburg, Pennsylvania

    You can't call this "Buffalo" Chicken Dip if you're going to use Ranch dressing in it! Real Buffalo chicken dip requires the use of Bleu Cheese!

    I double the chicken and use a Buffalo type Sauce instead of the hot sauce. Success every time!

    I made this for Superbowl, I followed the directions except I used the suggestion of rotisserie chicken and I used Franks Red hot sauce.. and no green onions...Everyone loved it!!...i thought about using the bleu cheese suggestion and glad i didn't..turns out quite a few of my friends when asked said that they do not like bleu cheese..the ranch worked perfect..very yummy..UPDATE: the amount of hot sauce in the recipe i have since reduced to cup makes it very hot and some people couldn't eat it..i put a 1/4 to half cup instead now depending on where i'm taking it still tastes great.

    I made this for our New Years Eve eve party. It was a HUGE hit! I followed recipe exactly , put it in the trusty crockpot and served with tortilla chips! I doubled the recipe , we had other items to eat of course , but this was the one I received the most comments on.

    This was a hit and all the guests loved it. I made this for our Family's Christmas Dinner Party this past December. It was something different than the usual Spinach Artichoke Dip or Veggie Tray (of course nothing wrong with those appetizers). I chose to use Refrigerated Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing instead of Ranch Dressing and served it with Celery Sticks and Scoops Corn Chips. I will definitely be making this recipe again.

    My daughter and her friends wanted this one day but I didn't have any chicken on hand. I decided to make the same dip but used spinach instead of the chicken and made Buffalo Spinach Dip. It has since become a fave in our house, especially since we have a lot of Vegetarian friends who now enjoy this as much as we do! Try it you wont be dissapointed.

    I have made this recipe several times and it is always a hit. I just made a batch for my son to take back to school. Keeps it in his dorm frig and microwaves it before eating.Next year he is living off campus and this will be a recipe that he will be taking..easy enough for an inexperienced cook to make!

    This is awesome for a party. Has just the right amount of spiciness and you can always adjust that my adding more ranch.
