When my friend, Sally, made this dip for a Labor Day party, the men hovered around the dish until it was devoured. I found this recipe for Frank’s Buffalo Chicken Dip and modified it for a party just weeks later.  Hearty and cheesy with a nice hit of heat, I haven’t met anyone who didn’t adore this buffalo chicken dip! This Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip is another hearty, man-friendly dip you’ll want to add to your must-make list.

Tips for Making Frank’s Buffalo Chicken Dip:

  • Use a rotisserie chicken to make this super easy. I put the hubby on the task of removing the chicken meat from the carcass. He’s a good sport and always helps in the kitchen, but the number of questions he asked was comical! I promise it’s simple!
  • Softened cream cheese is spread on the bottom of a baking dish, then the blue cheese salad dressing, hot sauce, cheese, and chicken were mixed together, spread over the cream cheese, and baked.
  • PRO: Tip: Set the cream cheese out on the counter about an hour before mixing the dip to allow it to soften. This will make spreading much easier.
  • I used mozzarella to give a gooey factor to this dip recipe, but blue cheese is another popular alternative.
  • Serve with celery sticks and tortilla chips. I love to cut thick slices of red bell pepper, too.
  • I garnished with a cross-section of red bell pepper with a pop of color plus some garden chives. Fresh parsley would work, too.
