My daughter, Kayti has a friend that makes this dip in her oven. At parties, the story goes, this dip was always a big rave. Hmmm. I was a bit skeptical of hot sauce in a chicken chip dip.
My first attempt, I didn’t have the right ingredients so I decided to use Sriracha hot sauce (hot sauce is hot sauce…right? WRONG, so wrong. DON’T EVER Use Sriracha for this dip! Bad, BAD choice! We all about gagged from the way too salty taste. I had to throw out the whole batch. Unhappy me.
You are going to want to stick to the recipe. Frank’s buffalo hot sauce is NECESSARY. Thus the title to this post 🙂 Three of our party had never eaten this dip or Frank’s Buffalo Hot sauce before. We are all converts to the unique flavor of this sauce!
It’s a party ‘must have’! What a great buffalo chicken dip. NOT hot or overly spicy. Just a nice, rich, filling, perfectly flavored dip. With chicken!
This dip goes great with tortilla chips and makes tasty nachos. Crock pot buffalo chicken dip also makes a good burrito sauce. Lately I have been using this dip as a sandwich spread too. It firms up when stored in the fridge and is a flavorful base for cheese, crackers, pickles or lunch meat sandwiches! My other chicken spread recipe is also delish but not a buffalo flavor. That one goes more the way of mediterranean.
