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.


Pleasure. 🙂

Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip

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)
Tortilla Chips

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.

  1. My kroger actually pulls apart the day old rot. Chickens and puts them in small packages to buy- my FAVORITE! How much chx would you say that the recipe calls for approximately? Thx!

  2. Thanks for this recipe!!! I had it but misplaced it. You can also add somc ranch or blue cheese dressing. Also, I am a spicy food wimp so I only add a tiny bit of Franks.

    1. Hi Pam,
      Just add a little sauce at a time, tasting it occasionally until you reach the desired “hotness”. 🙂
      Hope you enjoy it!

  3. Pam, 1/2 a cup of hot sauce is waaaayyyy too much for me!!!! I start with about a teaspoon and then add and taste until I have reached a hotness I can tolerate. Actually what I do is I make the dip except for the hot sauce and put it in two separate bowls. This way I can make 2 levels of hotness.

  4. This looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it!
    I LOVE your website. I use your recipes daily and every one is delicious, I don’t know how you do it!
    Question for you, do you have a recommendation for a recipe I could make for all my neighbors this Christmas? It’s such an overwhelming task I thought I would ask the expert.

  5. I made this dip for a party & added a container of crumbled BLUE Cheese to the Cream Cheese & Chicken mixture. I cut the amount of Franks’ Wing Sauce in half. I then served it with Carrot & Celery Sticks & Multi-Grain Tostitos Scoops. So YUMMY!

  6. This is really attention-grabbing, You are
    an overly professional blogger. I have joined your rss feed and
    stay up for in search of extra of your excellent post.
    Additionally, I have shared your website in my social networks

  7. Another thing to cut down on the heat is to add 1/2 cup of ranch dressing – doesn’t change the taste much, but the heat doesn’t overwhelm. We use the same recipe above, but make that one change. Good stuff!!! 🙂
