Most Buffalo dips I've tried are too thin and liquid to scoop, have huge chunks of chicken, or taste like mostly ranch dressing. Most of the ones that are made correctly are done in a brownie pan and after just a few minutes have a hard crust that forms making it difficult to get to the tasty dip hiding inside. My recipe attempts to solve all of these issues and more creating a consistent and thick Buffalo Chicken Dip that's perfect for dipping!
Many people also make this dip with blue cheese. If thats what you like then go for it. I have found the blue cheese to be overpowering, even just an ounce or two can overwhelm the dish with the blue cheese flavor. Not everyone likes blue cheese either, so its best to just leave it out.
Quality and brand name ingredients help make this dip even better. Use Franks Red Hot sauce because it's consistent in flavor and balances well with the other ingredients. After the dish is done you can add a different hot sauce if you wish. I find that using Hidden Vally Ranch dressing and Philadelphia cream cheese add a specific flavor that cheaper products do not. I would highly recommend using the exact brands and sizes that are shown in the recipe. The recipe will almost completely use the entire bottle of franks etc. so its best to buy everything fresh and not just whatever you have floating around.
With that said... lets look at the ingredients.
