Buffalo Chicken Dip

I love buffalo flavor.

I have already posted a couple other buffalo recipes:

Buffalo Wonton Cups

Buffalo Tater Tot Casserole

Buffalo Potato Wedges

One of my favorite recipes with buffalo flavor is this Buffalo Chicken Dip. I have made it for years. It was introduced to me from a friend Ann-Marie. There are countless versions of this recipe online and I am not sure the original source. Frank’s Red Hot has a version of it on their site and my recipe is similar. This dip is great with tortilla chips, crackers and even carrot sticks or celery.

  1. Hey Steve,

    Love the blog, good work.

    First time I’ve seen it but it’s been bookmarked because the buffalo chicken dip looks delectable. I love the 3 types of cheese that are in it, I can see it being so creamy and tasty. Definitely added to my ‘must try’ list so thanks for the inspiration. 🙂

    I’ve just started a new website where I discover and share unique and unusual kitchen appliances, gadgets, utensils etc that I find online.

    I’d love some feedback from someone like yourself who’s already a successful webmaster, can you tell me what you think please?
