    I made this recipe for my co-workers for the holidays. It was a big hit. This is a great dip to serve at a party as many party dishes are cold. The Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip being a hot dish was a welcomed addition to the party. We did try various crackers as well as celery stocks for dipping. Pita chips were nice but the celery was everyone’s favorite.

    I put the jalapenos on the side as I have a few co-workers NOT into spicy food. The tame crowd did like the dip (it did have a full 5oz bottle of Frank’s hot sauce) I put an extra 1/2 c of Mozzarella cheese to tone down the spice (it was cheesy).

    I highly recommend this recipe. If you are having a small gathering I would divided the recipe in half (took all day to eat the dip).

      Hi Sally, Thank you so much for coming back to take the time to leave such a nice comment.

      I’m happy to see that you & your co-workers enjoyed it. I agree with you a hot dish is always the welcome addition to any gathering.
