Seven simple ingredients make this Buffalo Chicken Queso the tastiest twist on queso we’ve ever tried.
You might say that I have a thing for cheese. Especially melted cheese. Hot cheese. Gooey cheese. You know what I mean. The good stuff. It therefore shouldn’t surprise you that I’m a tad obsessed with warm and gooey, cheese-based dips.
Given my obsession, and given the return of “game days” on the weekend, I knew I needed to add a new cheesy dip to my repertoire. I decided to start with the general basics of the aforementioned beer cheese dip as a starting point but then take it in a different direction. The direction: Buffalo Chicken. The result is really a Buffalo Chicken Queso. An orange cheese sauce with buffalo sauce and chicken.
You might ask how this dip is different from Buffalo Chicken Dip, which I know is all the rage these days. The difference is that Buffalo Chicken Dip seems to usually have white dairy ingredients, either cream cheese, yogurt, sour cream or ranch dressing, or some combination thereof. This queso doesn’t have that. It really focuses instead on the flavors of cheese and Buffalo sauce. Both dips are good, just different. Why not give them each a try and let me know which one you like best? Enjoy!
