It has been far too long since I last made a hot cheesy dip and I was getting cravings. With the long holiday weekend coming up it was the perfect time for a trial run of a new dip and I had just the idea, a buffalo chicken wing dip. The idea was to incorporate all of the flavours from your standard chicken wing pub fare into a hot cheesy dip. I started with your standard cheese dip ingredients including cream cheese and mayonnaise, though I cut back on the mayo by replacing a lot of it with sour cream. Next up was some chicken and hot sauce for the main flavours of the chicken wings followed by some blue cheese as wings are often served with a blue cheese dip. I finished the dip off with some cheddar cheese to give the dip a nice melted cheesy topping. The only decision left was what to serve with the dip for dipping and the obvious answer was the celery and carrot sticks that are commonly served with chicken wings. (Chips and crackers work as well!)
This buffalo chicken wing dip is so addictively good! Melted cheese along with chicken, hot sauce and the zing of the blue cheese is such an amazing combination of flavours! Even with the carrots and the celery sticks, this dip is not the healthiest snack around but it is ok to indulge every once in a while. It would probably be ok to go with light cream cheese and sour cream if you prefer.
All of that melted cheesy goodness tempers the heat of the hot sauce.
With chicken mixed in; old school style!
Buffalo Chicken Dip
All of the flavours of buffalo chicken wings in a hot cheesy dip!
- 1 cup chicken, cooked and shredded
- 1/4+ cup hot sauce (such as Frank’s Red Hot)
- 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
- 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- Mix everything, pour it into a baking dish and bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until bubbling and golden brown on top, about 20-30 minutes.
Note: Hot sauces vary in heat, use as much of your hot sauce as required to get the level of heat that you like!

I can't wait to make this on Saturday! I'm making your Reuben Dip and Jalepeno Popper Dip for a Street Fighter party my man is throwing – this will be the best dip trio anyone has ever tasted!
Oh wow…one of my boyfriend's friends makes this and brings it to just about every party ever and I've been wanting to find a recipe that looked good–I'm pretty sure I can trust yours! Thanks so much! I will have to make it, if nothing else, to find out what it tastes like when sober 🙂

I hope I don't get caught licking the screen….
This is just what I need for the wings I'm preparing this weekend! Thanks!
I am loving the blue cheese in this as opposed to it being a cooling condiment. Never thought of doing a dip such as this. Will have to try this one.

I could live off this dip 🙂
Looks so good, I've made a little bit different variation, but yours looks better!
Ana Powell says
Why are your recipes always so delicious and so eye catching?
Love your work, well done ♥
I love just about anything with buffalo sauce! Holy yum.
Oh, wow! This looks awesome. I can't wait to make this for my DH, who went to college in upstate New York.
By the way, what holiday is coming up in Canada this weekend?
(I love holidays and always make it a point to do something special for Chinese / lunar new year and for Bastille day, which is just around the corner. Any excuse for special foods is good enough for me.)
Have a happy Canada Day tomorrow, Kevin! It's too hot here to make a tourtiere, so I think we'll celebrate with maple praline sundaes instead. How about you?
oh my..nom nom nom
beautiful photos and recipe, if you want to come in my kitchen http://biscottirosaetralala.blogspot.com
I don't eat meat, but my boyfriend would LOVE this!!
I have a similar recipe on my blog but this one looks delicious as well… I will have to remember to try it and see the difference! =)
Wow – this looks fantastic! I think I'll make it for my 4th party as well. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂
this is a meal for me. i love this so much. i eat mine with any veggies.
Amy of Sing For Your Supper says
I love this dip. Mine never looks as delicious as yours, though! Yummy!
Cyn: Thursday was Canada Day celebrating Canada's birthday.
Culinary Cory says
I never really got into buffalo chicken dip until I moved to Pittsburgh. Now I see it everywhere. I like the variety of ingredients in yours.
This was fantastic! I made this dip for my party yesterday and it was a huge hit! I've already passed your blog on to several friends. I look forward to trying some other recipes soon.
You always make the most amazing creamy dips!!
This dip looks yummy! The only drawback is that I am not a huge fan of blue cheese so was wondering what I can add in place of the blue cheese. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Aggie: I would would keep things simple then and just replace the blue cheese with more cheddar cheese.
i had something JUST like this at a bills tailgate party last weekend and i was wondering HOW to make it! thanks!
Secret Agent Mama says
Making this….and, soon!
What is hot sauce? Is it a special kind or is it just Tabasco?
Frith: Any hot sauce like Tabasco will work. Selection here is fairly limited so I tend to use Frank's Red Hot sauce. In a few weeks I will be heading down to New Orleans so I should be able to pick up a few new brands to try!
I absolutely love this blog and this recipe. I make mine a little bit different but anything spicy and cheesy sounds good to me!
Buffalo Chicken Dip says
Absolutely amazing photo for this recipe! My wife is against the use of mayonnaise in dishes (although I have put it in without her knowing a few times) so I usually just use cream cheese and blue cheese in my dip recipe. Might have to do it again 😉
These dips are always the hit of a party, thanks for sharing your recipe.
gonna try this tonight!!
I use ranch instead of blue cheese but everyone loves this dip!!!!
The Short (dis)Order Cook says
I can't stand the game, but I love game day food! This is right up my alley. As I sit here laid up with the second bad cold I've had all month, reading your blog is potentially therapeutic with sinus-clearing dip and chicken soup.
Rebecca Hanson says
just made this and I have to say yumm :0) wondering if I can freeze and reheat for super bowl>
Rebecca Hanson: Glad you enjoyed it! I have not actually tried freezing a cream cheese based dip like this before but I would say that it should be good to freeze since you are going to be reheating it.
I'm eating this right now. It's so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
millysminikitchen: I am vegetarian and make my own variation of this with Quorn brand vegetarian chicken cutlets (thawed and pulsed in a food processor). The first time I made it was for a super bowl party. When I said it was vegetarian my friends were skeptical, but once they tasted it they said they couldn't even tell that it wasn't real chicken. Now they ask me to make it every year!
Was this recipe 1 & 1/4 cup of hot sauce?
Anonymous: It is 1/4+ cup indicating that you can start with 1/4 cup or you can go with more if you prefer it hotter.
Hi Kevin,not too sure what I was googling for that I came to your blog! Just tried your cauliflower base BBQ chicken pizza – it's so nice! Thank you for sharing.
can you serve this cold?
Wonderful Added lemon and my hot sauce which is thicker and less vinegar than Frank’s. Didn’t need blue cheese in my opinion. Leftovers became corn tacos, shredded cabbage, roasted green peppers with smoked hot sauce. Keep it up K
Since not a blue cheese fan, what is a good substitute or do we just leave it out?
Just leave it out if you are not a fan! Enjoy!
