You need to try this slow cooker buffalo chicken dip as it’s so incredibly delicious. Even better is that it’s so easy to make.
This dip is an absolute classic and a must-have for a regular game day or the day of the Super Bowl. You can leave the slow cooker on the warm setting to keep the dip nice and cheesy. It’s the perfect hot dip to make for your next party.
One of the best things about this recipe is how easy it is to quickly make. It helps takes the stress out of preparing lots of food, perfect if you’re cooking for a crowd.
You can also make some shredded buffalo chicken in the slow cooker. It’s perfect if you want some delicious chicken to use in your next sandwich or if you want a tasty topping on pizza.
Foods for Dipping
There are plenty of different foods that you can use to dip into this classic dip.
For example, tortilla chips or corn chips work perfectly. You can also use carrot sticks, savory biscuits, celery sticks, and so much more. Basically, if you can dip it, it will be delicious.
Not so much for dipping, but you can add this tasty dip over your next hot dog for a cheesy buffalo chicken hot dog. It’s an absolutely delicious combination that I highly recommend that you try.
Variations to Try
There are a few changes that you can make to this tasty dip that might make it more appealing to yourself and your friends and family. I will list just a few changes that you can make.
You can replace roughly a quarter to a half of the cheddar cheese with some blue cheese or sprinkle some over the top. This addition will bring a whole new range of amazing flavors. I only suggest doing this if you’re a fan of blue cheese.
I use shredded rotisserie chicken in this dip, but you can use canned chicken instead. If you decide to use canned, make sure you get it without flavorings as they will not mix well with the flavors of the dip.
Another ingredient that you can try adding is some crispy bacon. The bacon will add not only a different flavor but also a different texture. I haven’t tried it, but it certainly sounds like it will be a winner.

You can also use the leftover chicken as a topping on some nachos or even on a pizza. The cheese will become incredibly melty and delicious.
