Buffalo Chicken Dip

I'm working on carrying over some previously posted recipes. So cute to see the pictures of the kids when they were a little smaller! Here's one from April 2008.

Okay, so I never said all of our snacks were healthy. This is far from a healthy choice! However, it's one of Keith's favorite things to snack on. Ingredients:
2 cans of chunk chicken, drained
2 packages of cream cheese softened
1 cup ranch dressing
3/4 cup Franks
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
There are two different ways we make this dish. I like it this way -
1. Heat chicken and hot sauce in a skillet on the stove over medium heat. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. Cook stirring until well blended and warm. Mix in half of the shredded cheese and transfer to slow cooker, top with remaining cheddar cheese.
This keeps it in the slow cooker nice and warm for parties.
Keith, on the other hand, makes it this way -
1. Take all the ingredients, dump into Kitchenaid mixer, mix with paddle blade until well mixed, toss into baking dish, cook on 350 for 30 minutes.
It doesn't come out nice and smooth like the crock pot method. When it's baked there are still pockets of cream cheese, and it isn't blended as well. But, hey, he's in the kitchen cooking, so what am I complaining about? :)
Serve with celery or tortilla chips or Chicken in a Biscuit crackers or in Keith's case, just a spoon will do.

Awww...I miss when the kids used to eat off of character melamine plates. I think this picture was just a few months after Megan gave herself her own haircut!
