If you aren’t able to make it over to Landmark Americana, the College’s new restaurant and bar, for game day fuel, you will be left to your own resources to prepare a tasty halftime snack. If you have no recipes on hand or are not the most skilled cook in the kitchen, never fear— this buffalo chicken dip recipe is a sure hit.

With only a few simple ingredients and just 30 minutes of prep time, it is easy enough for anyone to make in a pinch. Pair with crudités, your favorite tortilla chips or wings for a perfect duo. For those who want a thicker and more filling dip, I advise adding a third can of chicken.

Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients:

8 oz block of softened cream cheese

½ cup ranch dressing

½ cup buffalo sauce

2 cans of chicken

1 package shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Remove chicken from cans and separate into smaller pieces in a bowl.
  3. Allow cream cheese to soften before placing in blender with ranch dressing and buffalo sauce. Blend until smooth and pour over chicken, stirring until coated.
  4. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish and top with a generous serving of shredded cheddar cheese. You can also layer the dip and cheese if you prefer to have a lot of cheese in the dish, rather than just as a topping.
  5. Once your dip is covered in cheese it is ready for the oven. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Let cool, serve and enjoy!
