Buffalo Chicken Dip

The rain has hit Oregon.  Not just rain, but RAIN!  It’s wet and, well, WET!  But I love it.  It makes me want to bake and hunker down with my kids and play and watch TV.  Wait a minute, I do that in the summer too.  Hmmmm……
Okay, different approach.  Now that fall is here (and it’s pretty darn cold in some states) how about some good comfort food?  That’s good-in-my-tummy-and-not-so-low-cal-food in my house.  That’s what I’m talkin’ about!  And here’s a great one for that – Buffalo Chicken Dip.   YUM!
Buffalo Chicken Dip
* 1 cup mayonnaise
* 1 1/2 cups sour cream
* 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
* 1 cup blue cheese, crumbled
* 1/4 cup hot sauce
* 3 cups cooked and shredded chicken
* 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
You don’t have to add the blue cheese if you’re not a fan.  My friend added ranch dressing instead.  Both ways are fantastic, but I do love blue cheese =o)
In a mixing bowl, cream together the mayo, sour cream and cream cheese.  Add the blue cheese crumbles and hot sauce and mix well.
Scoop into a 9×9 pan and cover with the shredded chicken.  (I added the chicken to the creamy mixture because I thought that sounded like a good thing to do.)  =o)
Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.  It’ll be hot and bubbly and totally delicious looking!
Serve with chips.  Frito Scoops work perfectly!  Or just a spoon.  Seriously.  It’s THAT good!
What’s comfort food for you?
