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 crockpot 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.

I recently bought this little crock-pot since I was serving crockpot chili in my big crock-pot.

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.
