Crockpot Week: Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip: be everyone's favorite guest when you bring this addictive dip to the party |

I'm ending Crockpot Week with my new favorite crockpot recipe. For years, I've searched for a chicken wing dip WITHOUT ranch dressing. Nick has me hooked on buffalo everything, but he hates ranch. I finally found a few that didn't have it and I adjusted them here and there to fit what I wanted.

Unfortunately for him, I made this after he deployed. I know, I know, I'm such a tease! But I did want to make sure it was perfect for when he got to try it. Personally, I thought it was fine in heat - the cream cheese definitely cuts it down some, but I know Nick is going to want double the sauce. I could not stop eating this dip though. I ate way more than I should have.

What you need:
  • 16 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz. Frank's buffalo sauce (plus some, to your liking)
  • 3/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1+ cup cheddar cheese (to your liking)
  1. Cook chicken and shred (I used my Kitchenaid). Add buffalo sauce and stir.
  2. Add cream cheese, celery, and cheese. Mix until incorporated.
  3. Place in your crockpot and cook on LOW until heated through.
  4. Turn to warm and serve with tortilla chips.
  5. I served mine in bowls and ate it as quickly as possible. I'm sure a fondue pot would work well too, but isn't necessary.
