Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe
My hubby LOVES chicken wings and for as long as I've known him that has been his go-to for any get-together or sporting event. I was able to get him to try this buffalo chicken dip a few football seasons ago and he LOVED IT! So it's been part of our party food list ever since!
It's easy and we have changed it up by using different hot sauces in it and it's always a hit.

I don’t like cooked spinach so I wonder if there another vegetable I can use in its place? This is one of the easiest low carb recipes I have seen. I’m single and don’t like cooking just for me, especially after a long work day. This seems so quick & easy that I can see making it even during the week.

I made this tonight almost exactly as the new directions say. I had baked chicken left over from Sunday dinner so I used cooked chicken instead of raw. I just added the chicken and the rice a little later. It was not too thick at all. In fact just perfect. I love soup. Will be a family favorite.

I’m from Buffalo and we cringe when we hear people use ranch dressing with chicken wing dip or chicken wings. In Buffalo it is ALWAYS blue cheese dressing NOT ranch.
