What is Buffalo Chicken Dip?

Well, it's one of the best dips out there! Especially during football season ;)

It's basically everything you love about buffalo chicken wings but without the mess and easier to make. It's creamy, tangy, cheesy, a little spicy, loaded with chicken and bursting with flavor!

How to make ahead Buffalo Chicken Dip?

This is one of the best parts of Buffalo Chicken Dip - that it can be made a few days in advance! Simply mix up the chicken, store in an airtight container and place in the fridge until ready to heat up over the stovetop with a little water.

**Do not place in the tortilla cups until ready to serve to keep them crunchy! 

How to store leftover Buffalo Chicken Dip?

Store leftover buffalo chicken dip (baked or unbaked) in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. I recommend storing any leftover tortilla cups separate in a ziplock bag at room temperature to keep them crunchy and not from getting soft in the fridge.

How to make Buffalo Chicken Dip in a Crockpot?

For slow-cooker buffalo chicken dip, transfer the chicken mixture to your crockpot and set it on low heat for 2 hours.
