Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip Recipe Still Tops

October 24th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Traditional chicken wings like these inspire the flavors of this cheesey, spicy dip

People just can’t get enough of this crazy Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip recipe. I get requests for it constantly. Super Bowl or World Series parties, Miami Heat parties (big this year – wonder why?) – Halloween parties – you name it and this dip seems to fit the theme.

It’s based on the traditional flavors of the original Buffalo chicken wings (allegedly started in the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY) – hot sauce, blue cheese and the wings. The beauty for the cook and eater is it’s hands-off – just put all the ingredients into a pot or casserole dish, cook and forget it. No bones, red sauce on the fingers – no mess.

You can barely mess it up – it’s so simple. Adjust the heat with the amount of hot sauce you put in.

Here it is for all you sports fans. (Go Fins! Go Heat! Do better, Marlins!)

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup Franks® Red Hot® Wing sauce – see note
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked, cubed
  • 1 cup feta cheese, or 8 ounces Monterey jack cheese, cut into cubes

Put all ingredients in a saucepot (or this double recipe and put into a small Crock-Pot). Cook on medium-low heat until cheeses are melted. Reduce heat to low and cook 30 minutes to blend flavors.

(You also can make this in an ovenproof casserole dish and bake it at 350 degrees until bubbling.)

Serve while warm with tortilla chips, Fritos Scoops (my favorite) or flatbreads. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Note: I like it hot, and use 1 bottle per recipe – but adjust hot sauce to your taste. Note that it gets hotter as it cooks. You also can add more chicken — and use any parts you like.

(This recipe originally came to me via Victoria Malmer, a co-worker at my former job as Food Editor of The Palm Beach Post.)

    My mouth is watering, Jan! Must try this even though I’m one of the few who can mess up any recipe.
