Super Bowl – Buffalo Chicken Dip

I was watching The Today Show this morning while on the treadmill. I love that show. They were showing from delicious recipes for the big game this Sunday. Super Bowl is always close to my birthday and it missed it by one day. I know my mom and husband will be watching. Me, I’m not so sure. However, I love all the food associated with the Super Bowl. I may just have to make this for my birthday!



Slow-cooker Buffalo chicken dip from The Today Show.

Makes 6 cups


2 (8-ounce) packages reduced-fat cream cheese
3/4 cup (6 ounces) cayenne pepper sauce (Crystal or Frank’s Red Hot)
1/2 cup ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing
1 1/4 – 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cooked and chopped (3 to 4 chicken breast halves or about 3 cups chopped); vegetarian substitution: cooked cauliflower florets
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or mozzarella
Tortilla chips, crackers, or vegetables, for serving
Combine cream cheese, pepper sauce, and ranch or blue cheese dressing and cheddar or mozzarella cheese in slow cooker. Cook over low heat, until cheeses are melted, stirring frequently.
Stir in chicken or cauliflower until combined; continue to cook until heated through, then keep warm in slow cooker.

Serve warm with tortilla chips, crackers or vegetables.
