My mom hosted an annual Halloween party for a few years when the kids were younger and one of the best parts about our gathering was all the great food. Every year was a little different but one dish I looked forward to was my sister-in-law Stephanie’s buffalo chicken dip. I don’t even like buffalo wings but something about the creamy, chicken and cheese combo scooped up on a crispy tortilla chip was heaven!

What Is Buffalo Chicken Dip?

Buffalo chicken dip is a fun twist on classic buffalo flavored party wings. This dip features chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, ranch, Franks hot sauce, and more cheese. A sinfully and irresistible party snack.



Ingredients For Buffalo Chicken Dip:

  • Cooked shredded chicken
  • Cream cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Ranch seasoning mix (homemade or store bought)
  • Franks hot sauce
  • Green onion
  • Shredded Colby Jack cheese

What kind Of Chicken Do I Use For Buffalo Chicken Dip?

I like to use shredded boneless skinless chicken breasts because it’s tender and blends in nicely with the other ingredients. Chicken thighs are a great option if you prefer dark meat and even canned chicken will work in a pinch.

How To Make Buffalo Chicken Dip Less Spicy:

To make buffalo dip less spicy reduce the hot sauce down by half. You can also add more sour cream as this will tone the heat.

Step by Step How To Make Buffalo Chicken Dip:

Step 1. Preheat oven to 350℉.

Step 2. In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sour cream, and ranch seasoning mix until smooth and creamy.

Step 3. To the cream cheese mixture add chicken, hot sauce, green onion and cheese. Stir to combine well.

Step 4. Transfer chicken dip to a casserole dish and smooth out in an even layer. Top with more cheese and bake until hot and bubbly.



What Do I Serve With Buffalo Chicken Dip?

  • Tortilla chips
  • Frito scoops
  • Pretzel crisps
  • Celery and carrot sticks
  • Mini peppers

How long does buffalo dip stay fresh?

Buffalo chicken dip will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in an airtight container.

Can I freeze Buffalo Chicken Dip?

Buffalo chicken dip can be frozen up to 3 months but just be aware that cream cheese and sour cream do not freeze well. Once thawed and baked it might not look as appetizing but it will still have great flavor.

Make ahead for easy party day prep:

I love to make dips in advance before I throw a party. Buffalo chicken dip can be made up to two days in advance before baking in the oven.
