Easy Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe Cooking / Recipes / Topics

Easy Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip

This easy Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip is a staple in my house and is always requested by friends for parties! It’s always best when I have a couple of leftover chicken breasts from a previous dinner, but canned chicken will also work! There are 3 must have items for me to make this recipe. Blue Cheese (I prefer Kraft), Franks Hot Sauce and Sour Cream. I have made it with Ranch dressing and other hot sauces and without the sour cream, but this is my final version of the best tasting Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip!

The ease of putting in a crockpot and letting it cook, makes this a perfect weekend afternoon snack for my family. Our boys love it! If you are making this for your family snack rather than a party, you can cut the recipe in half. Serve with your choice of Tortilla Chips, Crackers, Bagel Chips and/or Celery.

Cost

If you are a couponer or shop discount grocery stores, you can make this for under $10
Here is what I paid for the ingredients by shopping Aldi discounted prices and Tops using coupons:

Kraft Blue Cheese- $.50  (Tops)
Tops Shredded Cheese $2 (Tops)
Tops Cream Cheese $1.49 (Tops)
Bison Sour Cream $1.50 = 1/4 of for recipe= $.40
1 Canned Chicken $1.69 (Aldi)
2 Chicken Breasts $.90 lb = $1.00 (Restaurant Depot)
Franks Hot Sauce $1 for bottle= $.50 for recipe (Tops)
Total = $7.48 (the chicken at $.90lb was a steal!)

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Cut & Shred Chicken Breast if using left over fresh chicken. You can always cook a few chicken breasts if none left over. Add 15 minutes to prep time.
  2. Add cream cheese, sour cream and chicken to crockpot. Mix together to blend into cream cheese
  3. Add hot sauce. Mix
  4. Add blue cheese and shredded cheese. I always rinse the blue cheese bottle with a little water to get all of it in recipe and to also give more liquid to recipe.
  5. Throughly mix all together.
  6. Cook on low in crockpot for 6 hours or high for 3-4 hours
  7. Periodically stir throughout cook time

 

 

This Hamilton Beach Crockpot with LockLid is the best crockpot I have ever owned.

I have had it for over 5 years and it is used 2-4 times per week at home. Its easy to clean and the knob control makes it very easy to use. The locklid makes it so easy to make a dish and bring it to a party without worry of it spilling in the back of your car!

1 Box of Strawberry Cake Mix
1 Container Prepared White Frosting (not cream cheese)
1 Bag of Shredded Coconut

1 Package White Chocolate
1 Package of Milk Chocolate
1 Container of Small Red and Pink Hearts

Make the Fuzzy Love Bugs:

  • Bake the strawberry cake following the directions on the box.  Allow the baked cake to cool completely.
  • Remove from the cake pan and put into a large bowl.  Use your hands to crumble the cake.
  • Add ½ of the container of the prepared frosting.
  • Begin to blend the frosting with the crumbled cake by working the two together with your fingers.
  • Test to make sure that you have used enough frosting by making a ball out of some of the cake/frosting mixture.  Add more frosting if the cake is not holding its shape.
  • Make small cake balls.
  • Place the cake balls into your freezer for about 15 minutes.  While cake balls are in the freezer begin to prep the coconut.
  • Place coconut into a ziplock bag.  Pour the pink coloring into the coconut bag.  Seal the gel food coloring and coconut.
  • With your hands work the color throughout the coconut.  When the color is even on all of the coconut place in a bowl.

Dipping the Love Bug in chocolate:

  • Place the bowl in the microwave to melt.  Follow the directions on the package.  Reserve some of the melted white chocolate for the feet and antennas.
  • Using two forks dip the cake balls into the melted candy ensuring that all of the cake balls is covered with the melted white chocolate.

  • Take your white or regular chocolate and pipe thick lines on wax paper.  You can have fun here be creative straight or curvy.  Now add your heart candy on the end.
  • Remove your chocolate feet and place on another cookie sheet. Take one set of feet and then add a drop of melted chocolate on the middle of the feet and place a cake ball right on top.
  • Now take a knife and create two slits on top of the cake ball for the antennas. Carefully insert your antennas into the cake ball.
  • Repeat process with all love bugs.

Air Fried Brussel Sprouts Recipe

Healthy Fried Brussel Sprouts Recipe

My husband calls me the “Queen of Gadgets.”  I guess I would have to agree with him…..but let’s not tell him.
First it was the pressure cooker, which I still LOVE…..NOW it is one of those Airfryers that has everyone intrigued. Read more about this tasty Healthy Fried Brussel Sprouts Recipe!

There is a quaint little restaurant in our city that serves fried brussel sprouts.  I was not a brussel sprouts fan at all but one night when we were out to dinner, we decided to give them a try.  Fabulous and delicious!!!!  So I thought there must be a way to make these tasty morsels healthier, yet taste just as good.

My husband actually thought the ones I had made in the airfryer were better than the ones at the local eatery.  I was very pleased to hear him say that.  Since then, I have made sliders, chicken strips, french fries and more in my handy dandy airfryer.  At some point in the future, I am going to give meatloaf a try.  Stay tuned.  🙂

Hope you enjoy these Airfryer Fried Brussel Sprouts and find them as tasty as we do!!!
