Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip

Hello, friends! A couple weekends ago, Joshua & I had a barbecue with a few friends from his new unit. We grilled burgers and chicken, had a yummy tomato & mozzarella salad, and my favorite: enjoyed a delicious appetizer of Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip.

Last winter, my friend Annie (we met at our previous duty station in North Carolina) posted this incredible recipe on her blog. I've made it a dozen times, and finally made an alteration to take some of the bite off the buffalo flavor and include ranch, the all-time favorite condiment in our house.

Annie, I hope you don't mind I modified your recipe! Seriously you guys, you have to try this. We serve it with tostitos or celery. Yum!


  • 1 (12 oz) can of chicken
  • 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzerella cheese
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese dressing
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Add all ingredients to an oven-safe dish
  • Bake at 350° for 15 minutes
  • Let cool & serve with chips or celery!
It's so easy to make. So easy, in fact, that I was in the mood to play with my new 50mm lens, so I photographed the whole process to share with all of you! Enjoy. :-)
