Mmmmmonday: Buffalo Chicken Dip


Last Sunday we got hit with snow, so we spent the day on a food adventure and watching movies in front of our new electric fireplace heater. I've lived in Virginia almost 5 years and I can say I've become a true Southerner when it comes to snow- at the earliest hint of snow I cancel all plans and camp out at home, making known that I will not leave until the 60+ degree weather returns and melts the snow. This was probably 6" of snow, of which everyone up North knows doesn't even warrant a plowing, but needless to say, it shuts down the south.

Here's a picture of our new heater/fireplace (filtered beautifully) from IG:


For breakfast I made my Hashbrown Quiche, my husband's all time favorite thing I make. I haven't decided if I want to share it on here yet- it's that ace up my sleeve, that recipe that is one of my signatures, kind of like my queso... The comfort food celebration continued with this Buffalo Chicken Dip for lunch. (Dinner was Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup)


Before you judge, there are green and orange things to dip into the Buffalo Chicken Dip, see? Besides the health reasons of adding them as dipping vessels, they do help to calm down the heat of the dip.  That being said, I'll add it in notes below, but feel free to adjust the hot sauce added to your liking.

Ingredients:

4 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup Frank's RedHot Sauce (or 1/4 cup other hot sauce)
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Cups Rotisserie Chicken
Celery Seeds
Cheddar cheese, shredded
Blue cheese crumbles
Scallions
Crackers, Celery and Carrots (for serving)

Directions:

1.) Mix cream cheese, sour cream, and hot sauce. Fold in shredded chicken.
2.) Spread in a small baking dish. Top with celery seeds, scallions, and shredded cheddar.
3.) Bake at 425 until bubbly, about 20 minutes.
4.) Top with crumbled blue cheese


Notes
-Make sure to edit the hot sauce as to your liking- 1/2 cup makes it quite spicy!
-You could skip the celery seeds if you don't have them, but in my opinion they are delicious!
-I used leftover chicken breast and didn't have quite 2 cups, hence the runny consistency in the photos.


Pardon my while I go stuff my face with the leftovers.

Bon Appetite!
