Stud's contribution to the party was a delicious batch of buffalo chicken dip. He says "it reminds me of my childhood in Buffalo, NY." He grew up three minutes away from me here in Louisville, he thinks he's funny. LIAR. Basically he loves spicy cheesy things and this hits on all levels.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
4 chicken breasts, shredded (about 5 cups)
1 12 oz. bottle of Frank's Red Hot Sauce
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup. blue cheese dressing
Shredded cheddar cheese
Combine the shredded chicken, Frank's, cream cheese and blue cheese dressing in a bowl and pour into an oven proof dish. Cover with shredded cheddar cheese and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes until it is hot and bubbly. Serve with Frito Scoops!
The next time we make this I want to try using 1 c. of sour cream and then crumbled blue cheese instead of the dressing. This recipe can get a little oily if it sits for too long and I think that way would prevent that. And if you're against blue cheese, you can also use ranch dressing or sour cream and a packet of ranch dressing mix. Or a mix of both!
