Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe
Hi, everyone! Nichole from The Salty Marshmallow here to share one of my all-time favorite dip recipes with you today.
Buffalo wings are always a hit at any kind of party, potluck, or even just for dinner sometimes! While they are so crave-able, they aren’t always practical or simple to make.
That’s why I love buffalo chicken wings in dip form. It doesn’t get much easier than getting a few simple ingredients together, and letting your slow cooker do all the work to create a thick and cheesy dip that’s packed full of buffalo flavor!
For this recipe, all you need is a 2 quart or larger crockpot. You can, of course, use a 5 quart if you’d like to double this for a bigger crowd.
The ingredients are a simple and perfect combination of shredded chicken, cream and cheddar cheeses, buffalo sauce, dry ranch dressing mix, and garlic powder.
Make sure you don’t skip the garlic powder. It’s my “secret ingredient” that really makes this buffalo chicken dip stand out!
How Do You Make Buffalo Chicken Dip in a Crockpot?
- For this recipe, I like to use a rotisserie chicken when possible. It is already cooked, easy to shred and get into the slow cooker quickly. You can also use a couple of 10-ounce cans of all white meat chicken if that is your preference.
- Soften your cream cheese or cut into cubes before adding to the slow cooker. Softened cream cheese is best when possible. If you’re short on time simply cut the cream cheese into cubes first. This will ensure that it melts smoothly into the dip.
- Next, you will add your shredded cheese and seasonings. For shredded cheese, you can use whatever suits your preference. I find that we like sharp cheddar the best.
- After you add your shredded cheese, dry ranch dressing mix, and garlic powder, you will add in the buffalo sauce. Depending on your taste for spice, you may like more or less sauce. I have found that ½ cup is a great place to start. When the dip is finished you can add in more if you’d like it spicier.
