Servings 8 servings


  • 8 oz low-fat cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup Frank's RedHot Sauce
  • 1 cup ranch dressing
  • 19.5 oz Chicken Breast drained and shredded (you could certainly use 18-20 ounces of chicken and shred it yourself)
  • 1-2 cups Cheddar cheese shredded, divided
  • Tortilla chips or crackers


  • Soften the cream cheese by placing it on a plate in the microwave for one minute.
  • Combine cream cheese, hot sauce, and ranch dressing until smooth. Stir in chicken and 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.
  • Spread dip in a 9" baking dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Microwave for 8 minutes or bake at 350°F for 20 min. In either case, you want it to be hot and bubbling. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.


We almost always double this recipe and cook it in a 9x13 baking dish.
You can make the dip more authentic by using blue cheese dressing and blue cheese crumbles in place of the ranch dressing and cheddar cheese.
Also, make your dip tailgate or picnic friendly by preparing it in a disposable heavy foil pan. When you get to the tailgate, heat it on the grill, and serve hot.
This recipe would also work nicely in a small Crock Pot.
