Like Mother, Like Daughter: Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Chicken Dip

Sydney, my soon to be, someday soon, in the near future, daughter-in-luv (daughter) loves to cook and bake like I do. When she finds or tastes something she really likes she goes in search of a recipe. She tried a buffalo chicken dip over the holidays and she searched the internet until she found what she was looking for.

Sydney found this recipe at Frank's Red Hot Web site. She used the buffalo Red Hot sauce in this recipe. It is for sure addicting. And if you didn't notice, I was just a little late on taking photos. We had already dug in before the "ding, you idiot, take pictures" nudged me in the head.
But even though I was a little late, my photos are proof that this dip is fantastic.

The recipe can be found here.

One thing that I've notice about Frank's Red Hot sauce, it's not really hot. The "Red Hot" on the bottle has always steered me away from it. It seems like the hot flavor is there, but the burning sensation is not (does that make sense?). This stuff is really good, and I've found out that I love it on pizza.

Also, keep in mind that you can make this recipe low fat, and with fewer calories. All you would have to do is use the 1/3 less fat cream cheese, cook your own chicken instead of using canned, fat-free ranch, and low fat mozzarella cheese. You could also use a healthy cracker instead of using tortilla chips.

Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Chicken Dip

8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, soft
1/2 c. ranch salad dressing
1/2 c. Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese (it looked like Syd used the mixed cheddar and jack)
2 cans (12.5 oz.) white premium chicken breast in water, drained (Syd used 2 (10 oz.) cans)

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cream cheese into a deep baking dish. Stir until smooth.
Mix in salad dressing, Red Hot sauce, and cheese. Stir in chicken last.
Bake 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through; stir. Serve with tortilla chips.



  1. What a great party recipe! I'm looking forward to trying this. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This looks absolutely awesome.. I so love Frank's red hot.... cannot wait to try this

  4. Yum! I definitely need to give this recipe a try. The store brands are always nasty and I never knew how to make my own! xo

  5. Im in love with this recipe tried it for the first time this 4th july & it was the BOMB!!! :)

    1. This has been repeated many time in our home since Sydney has made it. It is one of those foods that you just have to have sometimes (without any special occasion).

  6. I use rotisserie chicken when I make this. It takes a little longer to shred the chicken by hand, but if you have the time to do it, it makes a hell of a difference!


I look forward to and appreciate any comments.
Thank you for stopping by.
