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.

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.
Throughly mix all together.

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!
