When it’s time to sit down and watch the game, we’re all about hot wings. They’re spicy and so

finger lickin’ good, we thought we might as well try our hand at a dip version. And boy, are we glad we did. This Buffalo Chicken Dip has all the things we love about hot wings – the spice, the flavor, the succulent chicken – without (as much of…) the mess or the big ol’ pile of chicken bones.

It’s got all of the kick of buffalo sauce, plus that cool flavor of ranch dip is packed right in. With cream cheese, ranch, and sour cream, the bottom layer of this dip is a creamy, cheesy extravaganza. That means every bite of this dip is layered with chicken, spicy buffalo sauce, and some extreme cheesy goodness. Did we mention there’s more cheese on top?

Hot and spicy and packed with chicken and cheese, this dip is exactly what you need for the big game… or any other party. Eat it with tortilla chips, or some nice crunchy celery, just be warned: the people will gather ‘round, so make sure to get your fill early on – this stuff is addictive!
