H is for: Hot Wing Dip {a Tailgate Special}

This Buffalo Chicken Dip is perfect for your next party or tailgate.
I have this weird affinity for wing sauce. I love the tangy, spicy and just overall deliciousness of the stuff. If it was socially acceptable, I could eat it with a spoon, but it's not so I eat it on things like chicken wings and in this dip.

This is Buffalo Chicken Dip (or hot wing dip for the sake of the blog). It doesn't look all that appetizing, but trust me, it's awesome. And normally I would never choose a vegetable over a chip for dipping, but in this case, it actually tastes just as good.

(**UPDATE 1/1/13: Most of the Authentic Eats links on the website seem to be broken, so I'm posting the original recipe here).



All you need is some cream cheese, Franks Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce, Ranch dressing, and cheese.


Oh, and you'll also need some cooked, chopped chicken. I had actually roasted a chicken the night before, so this worked out perfectly. Cooked chicken breasts or a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store would also work. (Or maybe even leftover turkey from Thanksgiving?)


Mix together all of the ingredients (except for 1/4 cup of the cheese) in a square baking dish (if doing a single batch), or a larger rectangular one (if you're making a double batch).


Sprinkle with remaining cheese and two tablespoons wing sauce (not pictured) and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until warm and melty.


If you are making it for a tailgate, I would mix it up in a heavy disposable aluminum pan and cook it on the grill. OR...you could make it at home and keep it warm in a Tailgate Hot Bag. Serve with carrots, celery, and chips. Careful, this dip can be habit forming!

  1. The color reminds me a queso dip, but I love the queso dip so I'm sure I’d love this dip. It'll be perfect for my tail gate parties. Tailgating is a hobby of mine. There's something about rooting for my team with my friends in the cold that makes it priceless. This year I have the Tailgater from my employer DISH Network and it really completes the party. It’s a portable HDTV System which only weighs 10 pounds so it’s perfect for tailgating, not to mention camping, BBQs, and RVing. The cool thing about the Tailgater is you don’t even need a second account to use it.
