Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

A friend's mother made this buffalo chicken dip recipe for us about a year ago. I got the recipe off of her not too long ago and added my own tweaks. This recipe is perfect for a game, a party or any snack. Everybody seems to enjoy this tangy snack. If you like buffalo chicken wings, this is very similar.

Prep Time:
 5 Min
Cook Time: 
40 Min
Yields: About 2 lbs.

Ingredients:
3 (10 ounce) cans chunk chicken, drained
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup Ranch dressing
1 cup pepper sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot®)
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (8 ounce) box chicken-flavored crackers

Directions:
  1. Heat chicken and hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through. 
  2. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. 
  3. Cook, stirring until well blended and warm. 
  4. Mix in half of the shredded cheese, and transfer the mixture to a slow cooker. 
  5. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top, cover, and cook on low setting until hot and bubbly. 
  6. Serve with tortilla chips, celery sticks or crackers.

This is a butter bowl filled with the dip after it has been refrigerated.
