The traditional part of the spread is a staple at our family gatherings. My sister-in-law is known for her 'crack in a crockpot' which is so addicting. We typically eat it with fritos, but we have used it in mashed potatoes, on sandwiches, dip for vegetables... basically we put it on everything.
1 lb shredded chicken
8 oz. cream cheese (reduced fat)
.5 cup ranch dressing
.5 cup Franks hot sauce
.5 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook chicken over medium heat, then shred with two forks.
2. Combine shredded chicken, cream cheese, ranch, and Frank's in a mixing bowl. Scoop dip into a small casserole dish and bake for 15 minutes.
3. Remove dip from oven and top with shredded cheese. Bake for an additional 15 minutes until bubbly.
