Equipment

  • 9 x 13 Casserole Dish
  • 2-Quart Saucepan

Ingredients

  • 16 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • ¾ c blue cheese crumbles, divided, plus more for garnish
  • ½ c Franks Red Hot
  • ½ c Texas Petes
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon parprika
  • 3 c shredded chicken
  • 1.5 c shredded mozzarella cheese
  • sliced green onions, to garnish
  • celery sticks, for serving
  • carrot sticks, for serving
  • baguette, sliced and toasted, for serving
  • tortilla chips, for serving

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 350°F with a rack positioned in the center of the oven.
  • Spread cream cheese over the bottom of a 9x13” casserole dish. Sprinkle with ½ c blue cheese crumbles.
  • Combine the hot sauces, butter, onion powder, garlic powder and paprika in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Simmer, whisking occasionally, until butter melts and sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the chicken to the buffalo sauce and toss to combine; let sit for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  • Spread the buffalo chicken over the cream cheese, then run a butter knife through the mixture to gently mix in the chicken. Top with the mozzarella cheese and remaining blue cheese crumbles.
  • Transfer to the oven and bake 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the dip is bubbling around the edges.
  • Garnish with green onions and more blue cheese crumbles. Serve immediately with celery sticks, carrot sticks, and toasted baguette slices.
