Buffalo Chicken Dip and Sliders

April 18, 2011

This recipe can be used in so many ways I hesitated to just call it dip. Cooled and spread on mini rolls it makes adorable slider appetizers,or several with some kale chips and you have a great meal.Spread some guacamole on a ciabatta roll,top with the buffalo chicken and you have a great summer sandwich.Serve a mound of it cold on a perfect piece of Boston lettuce with some avocado and purple onion slices to top.Or…serve it with home made tortilla chips as a dip, bubbling hot from the oven. Be warned…addictive!

  • 1 3-4 lb whole roasted chicken Shred chicken meat by hand,being especially careful to remove all bones.
  • 8 oz. cream cheese,room temperature
  • 1/4 C. blue cheese dressing
  • 1/4 C.ranch dressing ( I use all ranch and add some extra fresh bleu cheese)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 C.crumbled blue cheese (if you are not a blue cheese fan- do not shy away! you can substitute any creamy cheese- mozzarella,havarti,sharp cheddar)
  • 1/2 C.Moore’s Red Hot Sauce (any hot sauce of your choice will do- this is hands down our favorite and trust me we are experts!!)

Combine all ingredients except chicken.

Gently fold in shredded chicken,leaving it in small chunks rather than all separated.

Pour into a 9 inch pie plate or 8×8 pan and spread evenly,making some little peaks.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes,until nicely browned.  

To make tortilla chips:While dip is baking,heat a large saute pan. Pour about a teaspoon of olive oil in pan.Put the tortilla in the pan,sprinkle with some paprika and garlic or onion salt,and flip it immediately to get oil on both sides. Heat until large bubbles appear.Flip back over and cook about a minute on the other side.Keep warm in oven while making others.When ready to serve break tortillas into 2-3 inch pieces.

 Serve as dip immedately from the oven.

Or allow to cool a bit and make Sliders with a side of crunchy Kale Chips.

  1. OMG!!! This looks totally obscenely yummy! I’m going to go one better and use it to make pepperoni roll type rolls. Should be interesting. We use Texas Pete hot wing sauce, it is quite good, I don’t remember seeing Moore’s, but then, I don’t remember ever really looking for it!
