Buffalo Chicken Dip

Well, they did it. The Steelers won the Super Bowl. A sixth ring, one for the other thumb! Everyone here is groggy from staying up last night and my daughter said there wasn't many kids in school today. But everyone is happy. The Steelers won and there was tons of great food at all the parties last night, no doubt. We decided to have our own family party this year and I tried a new recipe, Buffalo Chicken Dip. It was easy to throw together and went well with the wings, nachos, pizza, cake and punch we had. This recipe makes a 9 x 13 size dish so it's plenty for any get together. All you need to add is chips!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 cans (12.5 oz) cooked chicken
1 bottle (12 oz) Buffalo wing sauce (I used Frank's)
2 packages (8 oz) cream cheese, softened (light version is fine)
1/2 cup ranch or blue cheese dressing
1 cup finely chopped celery
1 pkg. (2 cups) shredded Mexican cheese blend

In a medium saucepan, heat oil and add onion. Cook until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken, Buffalo wing sauce, cream cheese, dressing and celery.

Lightly spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray. Spoon mixture into pan. Sprinkle with Mexican cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, or until dip is bubbling and cheese is melted.

Serve with chips or crackers.
