Buffalo Chicken Dip

Despite the title, this dip is more commonly known as “crack dip” out in the blogosphere.  I’m sure you can figure out why.  It is so. darn. addicting.  Not just “I’m full but I can’t stop eating” addicting.  This dip falls more into the category of “I want to make this for every football game” addicting.

Is it healthy?  No way.  In fact, it contains not one but TWO types of processed bottled dressing.  I can’t remember the last time I bought a bottle of ranch dressing.  But this dip, complete with a promise of greatness and legendary back story, combined with the first weekend of the college football season, convinced me that I should break the rules.  It certainly didn’t hurt that this dip is bright orange, the perfect color for rooting on my Oklahoma State Cowboys.  In my defense, I did use low-fat cream cheese and dressings.  (I know, not really any better.  I had to try.)

So jump in, readers.  Throw caution and your better judgment to the wind and fix up a batch of this dip for you and your football-watching friends.  If you’re tailgating, keep it warm in a slow cooker.  I do have one piece of good news about the nutritional value state of this dip–you definitely won’t have leftovers sitting around to tempt you.

    Classic! I make this dip often during the football season, and it always makes me think of old Nestie friends. A favorite for sure!

    You had me at buffalo chicken and blue cheese! I don't have any orange teams to root for, but that's a minor detail that'll be easy to overlook. This dip is definitely game day worthy.

    The recipe i did last time just had the ranch dressing and I kind of missed the blue cheese tanginess so I just might try this recipe next time!
