Spicy Buffalo Cheese Dip

I LOVE dips!  Anything that could be considered an appetizer is tops on my list The best part of this Spicy Buffalo Cheese Dip is that you can adjust the spiciness to your liking and it tastes like everything you love in buffalo wings. There is nothing like a dip to bring people together – chatting, sharing a game, an experience, or just some time together. I love to serve this Spicy Buffalo Cheese Dip with our other favourite World’s Best Guacamole. The two are the perfect pairing and served with delicious crisp vegetables, nacho chips and a nice cold drink make for a great party appetizer.

I first tried this dip as a baked chicken dip by Hungry Girl and loved it.  But, with lots of vegetarian friends I needed to make some adjustments. I created this dip based on a variety of different ones I have seen on the internet.  Many call for chicken (which could be added), others for diced celery – but almost all have the same core ingredients – cream cheese and Frank’s Red Hot.

  3. Thanks for sharing this recipe! We actually do not make dips from scratch and rely on the premade ones at the store which often don’t taste anything like they say they do. LOL! My husband would love this – he likes everything spicy.
