Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip - Recipe
A classic Buffalo chicken dip recipe made with three cheeses, tender simmered chicken, Buffalo sauce, plenty of spices and three types of spicy chili peppers. This is the best buffalo chicken dip I have EVER tasted.
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 jalapeno pepper chopped
- 1 Fresno pepper chopped
- 1 habanero pepper chopped
- 10 ounces chicken breasts or chicken thighs, chopped
- 1 teaspoon Taco seasoning you can use a nice Cajun blend, or some of your favorite chili powders
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon chili flakes
- ½ cup beer or chicken broth
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 8 ounces Blue Cheese dressing Ranch is good, too
- ½ cup Buffalo sauce or more!
- 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
Heat a large pan to medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the peppers and cook them down about 5 minutes.
Add the chicken, garlic powder, taco seasonings and chili flakes. Stir and cook the chicken until it is mostly cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Pour in the beer or chicken broth and let steam. Reduce heat and cover. Let it simmer about 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is tender and cooked through. I like the flavor of the beer, but broth is good, too.
Stir in the cream cheese, blue cheese dressing, and Buffalo sauce. Make sure everything is nicely incorporated.
Sprinkle on the cheddar cheese and blue cheese and bake 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees, or until it is nice and bubbly. Serve with chips or your favorite munchie!
This makes a pretty large batch. You can save some, or make a few different smaller bowls and distribute them throughout your party. Enjoy!
Heat Factor: Medium-Hot. You'll get some pretty good heat from the habanero pepper. You can easily reduce the heat by omitting it and focusing on the jalapeno-Fresno pepper heat combination. If you're looking for spicier, add in another habanero and extra chili flakes.
