In Western New York where I live, our most well-known food is the chicken wing. The following recipe is based on our beloved chicken wings.
If you are ever visiting this great region, please try not to refer to the wings as Buffalo wings. Buffaloes do not have wings. Locals also jeer at dipping wings in ranch dressing. That’s a big no-no around here. The only acceptable dip is bleu cheese.
I am kidding, of course. Buffalo is friendly and welcoming to all our visitors. We may poke a little fun at you, but that’s all 😉
If I can bring up my hometown once again, let me just say this dip has made its way to many Buffalo Bills tailgates. It requires only 5 ingredients and is super easy to put together. If I’m not serving it on game day at the game, then I’m serving it to all my favorite animated armchair quarterbacks in my living room. Everyone loves it.
Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip
2 cans of chunk chicken
16 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup blue cheese dressing
1 cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce
Preheat the oven to 350
Stir in the cheddar cheese and the chicken and mix together until well blended. Spread the mixture into a baking dish. I usually sprinkle a little extra cheddar on top, along with a drizzle of hot sauce and bleu cheese.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until edges are bubbling.
Chicken – Use shredded chicken instead of canned. Rotisserie chicken works great!
Cheese – Use mozzarella cheese, if desired, or a mix of mozzarella and cheddar.
Dressing – If you aren’t a fan of bleu cheese dressing, you may use ranch dressing.
Hot Sauce – You can use any hot wing sauce you have on hand, but I highly recommend Frank’s Red Hot. I wouldn’t make this dip with any other kind!
Store leftover dip in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
