EASY Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

This recipe fits perfectly in the little mini slow cooker. My mini slow cooker came with my regular slow cooker and is perfect for dips.

If you decide to put it in your big slow cooker, I would double or triple the recipe and flip it to the warmer setting as soon as it’s done.

You can serve this with chips, pretzels or sneak in some veggies with celery and carrots.

Homegating Tips

​Make plenty of finger foods.  When you’re watching a game, you’re going to be eating off and on for a few hours.

Have everyone bring a dish.  People will bring something they enjoy, so you’ll end up with a bunch of delicious food! I love getting new recipes and it takes some of the work off you.  Most people are happy to help out.

Add drinks to labeled coolers.  No one wants to see inside a messy refrigerator and everyone can help themselves.

If you ask anyone, they will tell you that my drink of choice is Coke. I don’t drink any other soft drink. Sometimes my kids try to trick me and I know immediately. You can’t have people over to watch football without Coke. I love the Coca-Cola Half Liter 6-packs and I was so happy when they came out with that 10pk Mini. So make sure you add some to your coolers.

Prepare items ahead of time.  It’s no fun if you’re making pasta salad and everyone’s cheering on the game.  Make it the night before:  marinate meat, skewer your kabobs, and plate your hamburger fixings.

Put food out in waves.  If you leave the sweets out you know the kids will eat it all and you won’t get any.  Start out with some appetizers, then your main meal and sides, put some apps back out with your sweets.

Ingredients for Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip

Shredded chickenHere’s a great tutorial on the easiest way to shred your chicken. However, to make this recipe even EASIER, you can buy a rotisserie chicken and cut it up into small pieces. I normally use chicken breasts.

Cream cheese– This will need to be cubed. The softer it is, the faster it will melt in your slow cooker.

Shredded Cheddar cheese– You can buy shredded or shred your own.

Buffalo wing sauce– Use your favorite sauce. I normally buy Frank’s.
