Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip

It’s time for the Crazy Cooking Challenge. This month’s challenge is Ranch Dressing/ Ranch Dip.  I was looking to make a Ranch Dressing, but I couldn’t find one that I liked.  Plus, we had only two days after the topic was announced, so I wanted to make something really easy.  I thought a dip would be great since its football season and this dip is perfect for watching a football game.  Even though this is not solely a ranch dip, it has ranch flavor and has ranch dressing as one of its ingredients.

This Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip was great and easy to make! Its a great spin on Buffalo Chicken Dip and I really love the addition of the Ranch Dressing.  No football party, or any party for that matter, is complete without a great dip.  This dip is a great addition to any party and a perfect and delicious dip to eat while watching a football game!

Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip

1/2 cup ranch dressing
1/8 cup buffalo wing sauce or hot sauce
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Mix the chicken, ranch dressing, buffalo wing sauce, and cream cheese together in a large bowl.  
3.  Bake the dip for 12 minutes.  Then take the dip out of the oven and add 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese.  Stir together to combine.
