 Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip is one of our favorite snacks that can be cooked either in a crock-pot or baked in the oven. We like to make a big batch on the weekends to snack on with Ranch Pretzels or tortilla chips. We also love to use this recipe during the weekday inside some big baked potatoes.

Buffalo Chicken Baked Potatoes

Buffalo Chicken Baked Potatoes are easily made with the Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe and by baking up some Russet potatoes. Sprinkle your baked potato with a little salt and pepper, fill with Buffalo Chicken Dip and then top with some Ranch dressing and a sprinkle of shredded cheese. I know your family is going to love this as much as mine!

How do you make the perfect baked potatoes?

A perfect baked potato for me has a salty, crispy skin and is very soft inside.

Wash each potato and pierce with a fork. Then rub with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. I personally like a sea salt or coarse salt on potatoes. You can either wrap them in aluminum foil or for that crispy outside you will just set the potatoes directly on the rack without foil. Cook your baked potatoes in the oven at 350 degrees for at least one hour. They should be nice and soft when squeezed. Open up and top with a little more salt and fresh ground pepper. Now, top with whatever you please like Buffalo Chicken Dip.
