Lightened Up Delicious Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip
This recipe is one that is SURE to please a big or small crowd! I have used this recipe for YEARS at gatherings, events and parties. It's a big hit and I just so happened to sneak in protein from the greek yogurt and give it more richness from the ranch seasoning. You could have this with tortilla chips, celery or carrots or just on it's own! My husband went crazy and even made buffalo chicken melt sliders, just because!
Try this at your next gathering or at an event and let me know how you love it. It's a fun, tasty and lightened up option to share with friends and family!
