Roni Loren is joining us with a recipe that I know I will be trying out soon seeing how addicted I am to Publix's buffalo chicken dip! ☺
Roni Loren’s New Favorite Holiday Recipe: Crack Dip
I can’t believe the holidays are already coming up. Where did the summer go? But I’m excited because holiday time is my favorite of the year. I love the cold weather and I love food, so I get lots of both during that time.
I love to cook, so each year, I either handle Thanksgiving or Christmas for the whole family, which means two days of nonstop cooking. I cook everything but the turkey usually, so it’s a lot. But last year, I added a new recipe to the mix.
My biggest hit is usually my sweet potato casserole. (You can get that ridiculously delicious recipe from Cooking Light here. Don’t be scared that it’s “light, it’s literally the best sweet potato casserole I’ve ever had. And I’m from the South, so I’ve had a lot.) But the one that ended up being talked about the most last year was a recipe I found for “Crack Dip.”
Technically, this is Buffalo Chicken Dip, but I get why it earned the nickname Crack Dip. So, in theory, this sounds like it could be so very wrong—all the stuff from a plate of Buffalo wings made into a dip. But omg, it turned out so good. Everyone hovered around the table where it was at because they didn’t want to leave it too long. And it’s super easy.

Crack Dip Recipe:
8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 blue cheese salad dressing (I like the chunky kind)
1/2 cup buffalo sauce (like Frank’s Red Hot)
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
Bread, crackers, and veggies for dipping.
*If you’re one of those people who isn’t a fan of blue cheese, I’ve heard you can substitute Ranch dressing and mozzarella cheese instead. But I haven’t tried it that way yet.
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix cream cheese, salad dressing, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese until combined.
3. Fold in chicken.
4. Pour into a deep baking dish (I used one of those deep oval ones.)
5. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes, until everything is heated through and starts to brown around the edges.
Serve with dipping vessels of your choice.
If you end up trying this one, you’ll have to let me know what you think. What’s your favorite holiday food to eat?
