Lightened Buffalo Chicken Dip

One of Shawn and I's favorite flavor is buffalo. Anytime I find a promising buffalo-anything recipe I try to make it for us. A few months ago I made us these buffalo joes, and you can't beat this buffalo chicken mac and cheese. This dip is a new favorite among Shawn and I. I try to make a bunch for him and freeze it up every couple weeks. It's pretty spicy so feel free to cut back on the hot sauce (we like it hot!). It's great to eat with celery sticks, whole wheat crackers, baked tortilla chips, or one of my favorites sourdough bread (I prefer this with spinach dip: posting to come!).

 Dips is one of the things (among MANY) that I lose control with. I will be 3/4 of the way through a batch and down to the bottom of the bag of tortilla chips before I even realize the damage I've done. Because of this, I gathered different parts of multiple buffalo chicken dip recipes (google it, there's a ton) and lightened different parts up and came up with this bad boy. It's great for football season :)

8 oz neaufchatel cream cheese, softened
1 cup fat free sour cream
1/2 cup Franks hot sauce (I used hot buffalo)
2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese, reserve a pinch for topping
1 tsp white wine vinegar
2 cups (2 breasts) cooked shredded chicken
1/4 cup dry ranch dressing mix
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon seasalt
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Add all the ingredients but the chicken and reserved cheese together and mix. Add the chicken and put mixture in the crock pot on low for 2-4 hours. Serve warm and top with blue cheese crumbles. This makes about 6 cups.

Your blog is so cute and you need some comments, so here goes...

Made the Buffalo Chicken dip tonight for a potluck and got rave reviews! Several people said they were in "heaven". :) My only substitution was 1/4c hot buffalo + 1/4c regular buffalo sauce. It was still pretty zingy!

I made your dip for a baby shower last week and it was AMAZING and a big hit. everyone loved it!!! Maki wants me to make it for him all the time now.

I used half regular Frank buffalo and half regular Franks hot sauce bc I didn't want the ladies mouths to be on fire but I definitely want to try the hot buffalo next time.
