When you're first introduced to buffalo chicken dip, it's hard to remember what life was like before that moment. Your taste buds rejoice, and you suddenly know what you want the last flavor you ever taste to be. It's a moment of transcendence, and it's beautiful.
Okay, that description might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it also might not be. The flavor of buffalo chicken is an exceptional one, and this dip highlights it magnificently. It has all the aspects one needs to make a delicious dip without being too complex, while also managing to not skimp on flavor. Plus, it's simple to throw together, and you can easily make adjustments.
- 1/2 cup buffalo sauce, preferably Frank's Red Hot

- 8 oz cream cheese
- Combine all ingredients together in a medium saucepan.
- Melt them over medium heat until everything is well-combined.

Try Something Different
I'm going to be perfectly honest with you—I don't think I've measured out the ingredients for buffalo chicken dip since the first time I made it. You simply don't need to do so. This particular recipe is one where it's just as easy to guess, then alter accordingly, as it is to initially measure everything out.
As for adjustments, it's very easy to play around with this recipe. If you're not a fan of cheddar cheese, add a kind of cheese you like. Do you not enjoy chicken? Add turkey instead. Want it to be a little spicier? Go ahead and add more buffalo sauce. You are free to dress it up or dress it down however you'd like.
While I opt to make the dip on the stove, you certainly don't have to do so. You could try baking it, as long as you disperse the cream cheese throughout the baking dish. You could also make it in a crockpot, which is an excellent option if you're short on time or don't like standing over a hot stove. I've even thrown it on top of a pizza crust and baked it. Again, the recipe is open to interpretation, so you can't really go wrong. Give it a try and share your favorite version in the comments.
