Here’s one of my favorite crockpot dips of all time — buffalo chicken dip. It’s a classic and so easy to make.
What makes this buffalo chicken dip different?
This recipe for buffalo chicken dip has a slight twist — a bit of ranch dressing added in. It’s also a little meatier than most. I personally enjoy more chicken and less cream sauce but you can adjust the ratios according to your preference.
My first encounter with buffalo chicken dip
I first discovered this buffalo ranch chicken dip at a diner in Linesville. After taking a trip with the family to the Linesville Spillway in Pennsylvania to see “the ducks walk on fish.” If you’ve never heard of this place, it’s really wild! Here’s a YouTube video of these insane fish. It’s cool to see but a little weird too!
Anway, once we tried this buffalo chicken dip we knew we had to recreate it.
This dip makes a great appetizer for a party
We’ve been making this for years now as a party appetizer served with tortillia chips. This version with ranch added has gotten the best reviews.
Make this in a mini crockpot or bake it
Either way you make this dip, it’s super easy. I like to make it in my little crockpot because you can cook it and keep it warm all in one pot. However, if you don’t have a little dip crockpot, you can make this in a small oven-safe dish and just bake it right before you’re ready to serve it.
Serve this buffalo chicken dip with chips, bread, or celery sticks
You can serve this with tortilla chips or sometimes I get a crusty French baguette and eat it with slices of that. It you want to go low-carb, try eating it with celery sticks! You can also finely chop celery and put it on top for a fun garnish.
