Buffalo Chicken Dip

Once upon a time, my delicate tastebuds couldn't handle anything spicier than mashed potatoes.  Ketchup, salt and pepper comprised my entire condiment repertoire.  Then I was inadvertently introduced to the spicy side of cooking, and I was hooked: indian curries, buffalo sauce, even habanero salsa.  None of it is too spicy for me!

So imagine my delight when I found that one of my favorite Buffalo chicken treats is actually low-carb!  Of course, I can't eat it with crackers anymore, but a spoon works just as well.  If you like celery, I imagine this would be a perfect partner.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
2 - 12.5oz canned chicken
1/4 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce (more or less to taste)
1- 8oz package cream cheese
2 Tbsp Ranch or Bleu Cheese dressing
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Warm the cream cheese in the microwave till soft.  Combine it with all the ingredients except the cheddar cheese in an oven safe dish.  Bake at 350 about 15 minutes; top with cheese and bake another 10 minutes or till cheese is melted.

In a pinch, you can halve the recipe and just cook it all together in the microwave-safe dish for a quick snack.  I just did, and I have no regrets.
