This is another recipe that I got from my friend Lyndy. She brought it to share at a party we had a couple of years ago and I begged her for the recipe afterwards. Every time I have made it, it has been a big hit. It is a great snack for a Super Bowl party or any get-together. I’ll be making it to munch on during the big game this weekend!
Lyndy says the recipe originated in Burlington Iowa….the birthplace of the hot chicken lip.
2 8 oz blocks cream cheese*
3 cans chicken (you can add more if you want more chicken chunks)
3/4 Cup Franks Hot Sauce
1 Cup Ranch Dip* (already mixed together – find it by the sour cream at the
1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese*
Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 for 30 min. or until it bubbles. I usually sprinkle some extra cheddar cheese on top during the last few minutes of baking time.
Serve this with tortilla chips or, my personal favorite, slices of pita bread.
You can also cook in a crock pot if you prefer, but make sure and give it enough time to heat thoroughly.
*You can substitute low fat versions of all of these and it still tastes great!
