Natural Buffalo Chicken Dip without dressing

In honor of Superbowl Sunday, I've been searching high and low for a good buffalo chicken dip recipe that doesn't use ranch or blue cheese dressing as a principle ingredient. I haven't found one that suited me very well, so I came up with my own. I think it's awesome!


1.5 c sour cream
8 oz cream cheese
2 c cooked, chopped chicken
1/2 c cayenne pepper hot sauce (I used Frank's Wing Sauce)
3/4 c blue cheese
Ranch seasoning:
1t dried chives
1t dried parlsey
1t dried dill
1/2t garlic powder
1/2t onion powder
1/4t salt
1/4t pepper

Mix it all up! Adjust all the quantities to taste. I used the food processor to chop my chicken 'cause I like my chicken finely chopped. If you like chunks, chop your chicken differently. Yields ~5.5 cups or so? It's a lot!

For vegetarians, leave out the chicken.
For blue cheese haters, leave out the blue cheese.
For people without spices, leave our the ranch seasoning.
For people from the midwest, use less wing sauce.
