Recipe: Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip

Now that the nice weather is here and you are entertaining outdoors more, here is a quick, easy, and delicious recipe that uses some ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry or fridge.

Wing Sauce is a very versatile ingredient. Here is an example of another way you can use it!

8oz. pack of cream cheese
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1/2 cup Monty's Best Buffalo Wing Sauce
2 cups of shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1/2 cup celery

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Microwave cream cheese 1 minute to soften.
Whisk in salad dressing and wing Sauce, stir in chicken, cheese and celery.
Bake 20 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or vegetables.

Variations: Add a little crunch by topping with chopped walnuts
or sliced almonds before baking

You can also make Buffalo Chicken Dip with blue cheese dressing instead of ranch and blue cheese crumbles in the place of cheddar for an authenitc wings with blue cheese sauce taste. Also, it makes it a lot easier if you use canned chicken instead of cooking and shredding your own. I work with Swansons and we use their canned, all white meat chicken breast. It's just as tasty as cooking your own but takes a lot less time.
