I have a very simple appetizer recipe for you today. Sometimes the simplest of things can make life so much calmer and easier and oh so fabulous. Simple is under-rated, in my book. Especially at this time of year when we all try and pile on 10 times as many activities as we have time for. You don’t do that? I am so proud of you. You are a life manager extraordinaire.
This dip takes very short 10 minutes to assemble, and requires only 5 ingredients (including the tortilla chips and celery sticks you see before your very eye balls). Did I not say it was going to be simple! I did. Pretty sure of it, actually.
Things you can expect out of this dip…
Dip a chip or cool celery stick into its fabulous-ness and enjoy a bite of simple pleasure, ladies and gentlemen.
Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip
PRINT RECIPE WITH PICTURE
Time: 10 minutes prep + 1 hour crock pot cooking
Yield: 2-3 cups
Recipe from my talented sister-in-law Mary Ehrhart
1 rotisserie chicken
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 C Franks Red Hot Cayenne Pepper Sauce (Or Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce)
1. Grab your self a nice looking rotisserie chicken.
Remove the meat from the bones and give it a nice chop. Toss it into a small crock pot (between 2 and 4 quarts in size).
2. Unwrap 1 package of cream cheese and place it on a microwave safe plate. Heat it for 30 seconds, or until the cream cheese is soft. Warming it up a bit makes it a lot easier to spread and incorporate into the dip. Place it in the crock pot.
3. Pour in 1/2 a cup of Franks Red Hot Sauce. More if you like it really spicy, less if you want less of a kick.
4. Stir all of the ingredients together so that the chicken is covered in the cream cheese and hot sauce. Cook on low for 1 hour, or until the mixture is heated through. Then turn your crock pot to the warm setting and enjoy!
Serve with celery sticks and tortilla chips.
