Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cubed and softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce, plus more if desired (see notes for recommendations)
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions, divided (approximately 8 green onions)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (discard skin; chicken breasts may be substituted)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Crackers, crostini or celery for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, 3/4 cup blue cheese, 1/4 cup green onions, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, stirring until most or all patches of cream cheese are blended with the hot sauce. Add the rotisserie chicken and stir until evenly combined.
  • Spread evenly into an 8x8 baking dish or 9-inch pie dish (Note: any similar sized baking dish will work). Sprinkle the mozzarella on top along with the remaining blue cheese and green onions.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until hot and bubbly. You can optionally drizzle a bit more hot sauce on top before serving. Enjoy with crackers, crostini or celery.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. To reheat leftovers, place in a microwave-safe dish, cover, and heat on HIGH power in 30-45 second increments, stirring, until hot.

Notes

I recommend using Frank's RedHot Sauce with this dip if you enjoy the taste of traditional buffalo wings. However, I have also used Cholula Hot Sauce with great results! I can’t personally speak for how other hot sauces will substitute, but I’d imagine many will work as long as they don’t have an overpowering heat level or unusual flavor profile.
