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

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.
