Dorm room dish: Spice up your night with a fun new dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip:

Chips and dip are the most basic recipes that can be made within a school dorm. Dip is the easiest thing to make when getting together with a few friends for a late night gossip session or just for a late-night snack during the week or weekend. Buffalo chicken dip is a trend that has become something new and delicious for all people to eat and love. It’s a way to keep everything spicy and different during get-togethers, or something different for yourself, when you are trying to eat something unusual late at night.

The ingredients and directions in order to make Buffalo chicken dip are extremely easy and worthwhile for all college students. You are going to need two chicken breasts, two 8 oz. packages of Philly cream cheese, a half cup of ranch dressing, a half cup of blue cheese dressing, a half cup of Frank’s red hot sauce, a half cup of Frank’s hot wing sauce, one cup of shredded mozzarella, one cup of celery and blue cheese crumbles.

The first step is to cook the chicken breasts (either fried or baked in the oven); whichever you prefer is just fine. Once the chicken cutlets are finished cooking, cut them up really tiny, and then put them to the side. The next step is to get a big bowl for all the ingredients to be mixed together.

After cooking and cutting the chicken, put the cream cheese into the big bowl and melt it slowly until it is smooth and mixable. After the cream cheese is melted, you can add everything and mix it together. The easiest way to mix things is to mix the two sauces first, the cheese second, the chicken and then the celery.

Once you have all the ingredients added into a bowl and mixed together, you can pour all the ingredients into a dish to serve the dip in. Usually a good sized pan works for this type of dip. The bigger the pan the easier it is for everything to cook and mix together while in the oven. Add the blue cheese crumbles or the mozzarella on the top. Both cheeses add for a big taste of flavor.

The last step is to put the mixed ingredients into the oven, the temperature depending on how quickly you want the dip cooked. From there use your judgment on how hot the dip is. It is best when the cheese on the top is a little brown and melted.

Buffalo chicken dip is a delicious snack to use when studying for midterms, or when you are trying tog get away from studying and hang out with a few friends. It’s simple and fast to cook, which makes it more convenient for the busy and little time student, which we all are!
