Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dip When I started teaching my son to cook, I asked him to pick something he loves to eat. He requested Buffalo Chicken dip. He was so proud of how well it turned out. Easy and delicious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Buffalo Chicken Ever!! Every year my cousin made this Buffalo Chicken Dip, I thought it took her hours to make and was super difficult because it is so delicious and hearty..she serves it with bread, crackers and veggies and it gets devoured fast!! So I came across this recipe one day on Hidden Valley Ranche’s website and I couldn’t believe how simple this is to make!! I have made it several times now and my family loves it!! Thank you HVR!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So good This recipe is so good. I've tried it with dry hidden valley ranch season and bottle ranch dressing. I prefer it with the bottle ranch. Just makes it a bit creamer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cheesy! ... in a good way! We love this recipe! We usually have all the ingredients on hand and it's so yummy! You can adjust the hotness of the dip and we usually add bacon bites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a crowd pleaser! Made this for a Halloween get together and I only had two bites, turned around a few minutes later, and everyone had eaten it all! Fantastic recipe. Only thing I messed up is I’m so used to salt and peppering chicken when I cook it that it ended up a bit too salty for my taste. If you cook your own chicken then just make it plain. The ranch packet is the perfect amount of seasoning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hit, anytime, anywhere! I was looking for a good "snack" to make while I got my housework done, I just moved into a new home and that consisted of putting the entire house together. I needed something to sustain and keep my energy for this process. I found this recipe and thought it was a brilliant idea. It's not just chips or something I'll have to keep stopping to get more of every 10 mins, I could get it all together, put it on, get back to whatever I was doing, have some when I was done and be satisfied for awhile and have extra for whenever I got hungry again. Little did I know I would fall in love with it and now make it any time I get an excuse. If there's a game on, chicken dip, if it's raining, chicken dip. If it's Sunday and I don't want to spend the day making a feast, chicken dip. Theres nothing that's happened or been going on where I didn't think this chicken dip would have a place. Beware though. Once you have it the first time, all other foods will be unappetizing. Also one thing I love about it is it can be altered for whoever is sharing it. If they don't like spice, don't put in the Frank's/hot sauce or just a tiny bit for flavor. If you're with someone who could eat fire and not break a sweat, add more Frank's/hot sauce. You can even add whatever foods, veggies, spices, or herbs you wanted to it as well to kind of give it your own little signature twist. Your own "secret ingredient."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Twist on a Favorite I had seen this recipe before. While at the grocery store, I decided to buy the ranch mix to give it a try. I did omit the blue cheese crumbles and added cubes of muenster cheese instead. It turned out AMAZING!! This is my new go to chicken buffalo dip. Everyone who tried it, loved it!!
