warning - may be habit forming
and there are no bones to get in the way.
i made it SUPER spicy this last time.
it "burned" so good i couldn't stop eating it!
well actually....once i wiped the tears from my eyes and the sweat from my brow i was able to continue on.
there are a lot of different versions of this yummy dip.
its perfect for snacking on as you watch your favorite sports team.
or watching the olympics
or the oscars
or just because.
i think i have finally found my favorite balance of hot sauce and bleu cheese.
here is my recipe for the dip also known as "crack dip".
Buffalo Chicken Bleu Cheese Dip
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened and cubed
1/2 cup bleu cheese dressing (i used a good quality lite blue cheese dressing)
1/3 cup hot sauce like Frank's or (if you like it really spicy add a 1/2 cup)
1/3 cup crumbled bleu cheese
2 cans (12.5 oz. each) chunk chicken breast in water, drained OR 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
Heat oven to 350°F.
In a medium sauce pan on medium heat, place cream cheese cubes into pan and stir until smooth.
Add in the salad dressing, hot sauce and cheese and stir until combined. Stir in chicken.
Pour mixture in to a casserole dish.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through and bubbling.
Remove from oven and give dip a stir.
Garnish with celery sticks. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers or vegetables.
