Crock-Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe
Game days, tailgating, potlucks, dinner parties, and even New Years’ Eve are excellent occasions for you to make and indulge in this irresistible buffalo chicken dip. Let’s face it, most of us are infatuated with anything that is buffalo chicken flavored…myself included. It’s tangy and has such an amazing flavor. It’s impossible not to be in love with it. There have been times I will just make up a batch of this buffalo chicken dip and munch on it for lunch. It’s that good and keeps me satisfied all day until dinner.
The thing I love most about this dip is that I can make it in the slow cooker. I don’t have to watch it non-stop and continuously stir and mix. You can simply add the ingredients and go on about your day until you are ready to eat it up. Oh, and it makes a lot of dip, so it’s great as an appetizer to hold over your hungry crew until the main course is ready.
We will serve this with all sorts of other party foods. On nights when we have guests over, we pretty much make a bunch of appetizers and graze all night. Those are the best kinds of parties if you ask me.
If you want to make a batch of the buffalo chicken dip ahead of time, you can make it as directed then refrigerate it for 4-5 days. Warm it up in the crockpot or microwave when you are ready to serve.
You can dip tortilla chips or veggies in it, or if you want to go wild, you can add it to a dinner roll and eat it as a sandwich. Seriously it’s that amazing!
Can I Use Rotisserie Chicken for Buffalo Dip?
Yes, you can easily use rotisserie chicken for this buffalo dip. You can really use any cooked chicken that you like and add it to the dip. I prefer chicken breasts because I just enjoy their flavor and texture, but sometimes we find a great deal on rotisserie chicken and use that instead.
This dip is actually great with ground beef, ground sausage, or even ground turkey or chicken. It’s a truly forgiving recipe, and you can try it several different ways. I love recipes like this because it’s versatile, and you can’t go wrong with whatever meat you put in it.
What’s the Best Hot Sauce for Buffalo Wing Dip?
I prefer Franks Red Hot Wing Sauce for this buffalo chicken dip. You can switch it out with your favorite sauce if you want. But I think you will have a hard time finding anything better than this sauce!
Can I Adjust the Hot Sauce to Be Spicier?
Yes, you can add in extra sauce to make it even hotter if you want. Another way to kick up the heat is by sprinkling in some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes too. They will turn up the heat and keep the sauce texture just right. If you love some hot food, then this spicy dip is exactly what you need.
Another excellent option is to chop up some jalapenos and mix them into the dip before it cooks. This will give you lots of heat and add some color to it as well.
- Shredded Cooked Chicken Breasts – Cook the chicken breasts; however, you normally like to cook it. In a skillet, boiling in broth, or on the grill are all fantastic methods to try.
- Buffalo Sauce – I always use 1/2 cup, but you can add more if you want it to be saucier or extra hot. You can also sprinkle in some spicy seasonings too.
- Cream Cheese – If you are making a single batch, you only need 1/2 of a block, but you can double the batch and use the entire thing if you want.
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese – You can either use a bag of cheese or shred your own using a block of cheese. Both are great!
