Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip

I just love the flavor of buffalo sauce with ranch, the two come together alongside cheddar cheese and cream cheese for a dip that pairs with just about anything.

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 16 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • ¼ cup ranch dressing
  • 3 tablespoons buffalo sauce of choice (I use Frank’s Red Hot)
  • 1 (2-pound) store-bought rotisserie chicken
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced, whites and greens separated


  • Remove the skin from the chicken and discard or set aside. Use you hands or two forks to shred the chicken.
  • Heat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Add the cream cheese, shredded chicken, 3/4 of the cheddar cheese, ranch and buffalo sauce to a 1½ quart baking dish.
  • Bake until the cream cheese is soft, about 15 minutes, then stir the mixture together.
  • Stir in the whites of the green onions and top with the remaining cheddar cheese.
  • Continue to bake until the cheese is completely melted and bubbling, about an additional 20 minutes.
  • Top with the remaining green onions and serve with celery, carrots and tortilla chips.
