Buffalo Chicken Dip

After our families Christmas lunch my sister-in-law invited my husband and I to stick around and pig out…as if we hadn’t already!  She made this buffalo chicken dip that wasn’t the prettiest dip in the world, but hot dang was it addicting.  There is something to be said about a dip that you can’t stop eating even after a huge Christmas feast.  Her dog was standing underneath me, hoping I would accidentally drop a chip for her to scarf down. I dropped some dip alright…on her head!  Poor dog.

So it has been 2 days since I tried this dip for the first time and I already made it for myself because I could NOT stop thinking about it.  It did not take me long to track down this recipe…you can find many versions of it on All Recipes and on one of my favorite blogs The Girl Who Ate Everything.  I used a hotter wing sauce though because the more spicy the better. Also lightened the recipe up a bit to help all the piggies out there be able to eat as much as this dip as possible in one sitting!
I try to take my own images, but in this dip’s case it is not photogenic and…I had already eaten my portion and had to hurry to stash it away before I devoured the whole thing.  So the picture did not get snapped!  Found this picture at All Recipes.

Servings: 5 
WW Points Per Serving: 8 

Ingredients

1 12.5 oz can chunk chicken breast in water 
1 8 oz package light cream cheese 
1/2 cup fat-free ranch dressing 
1/2 cup hot wing sauce (choose which ever heat you prefer, I like it HOT!) 
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese 

Serve with:

celery 
rice crackers 
crackers 
tortilla chips 

Additional Toppings:

blue cheese crumbles
bacon
celery
green onion
tomato 

Directions 
In a medium sauce pot over medium heat, add the wing sauce. 

Drain and rinse the chunk chicken. Shred the chicken into smaller pieces as you place it into the same sauce pot.   
Stir in the fat-free ranch dressing and add the cream cheese.  Stir the dip often as the cream cheese is melting and once it is combined, add the cheddar cheese.  Stir until the cheese is melted in and combined.   
Pour into a serving bowl or if you are like me, just eat it out of the sauce pot (I know, classy)!
