Hooters’ Hot Wing Dip

Last night my husband and I went to a birthday party of a dear friend.  At this party we met a lot of new people who I feel will become great friends; they were so much fun! 

One of my new friends, Leigh Ann Jacobs, brought this delicious dip – my husband loved it.  I just have to share it with you all.  Thanks Leigh Ann!

4 – 8 ounce packages of cream cheese

1 package of Ranch Dressing mix

2 chicken breast, chopped

1 bottle Hooters’ Hot Wing Sauce – USE HOT ONLY

2 cups cheddar cheese, grated

You make this dip in 2 layers.  Mis the cream cheese and Ranch dressing packet.  Layer, 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture on bottom of baking dish, top with 1 chicken breast – chopped, 1/2 bottle Hooters’ Hot Wing sauce, and 1 cup of the cheese.  Repeat for next layer.  Bake at 350 until dish is bubbly and cheese melts.  Eat with Frito corn chips.
