Buffalo Chicken Dip

This is a dip favorite at the Edwards house.  My future bro in law's mother made this for us a good while back and it was gone in no time.  Thanks Regina for this great recipe!
As always, I am continuing to try out old recipes and making them "skinny".  This is easy to make a little more figure friendly and not sacrifice the taste.

What you will need:
-Tostitos Scoop Chips (Can use reduced fat)
-8oz Cream Cheese, softened (Fat Free)
-Chicken (Canned chicken works great for a budget; or use Boiled Chicken Breast and shred)
-Blue Cheese (Can substitute for Fat Free/ Lite Ranch Dressing)
-Franks Red Hot Sauce
-Shredded Cheddar Cheese (Fat Free)
Franks Red Hot Sauce

Place shredded chicken in pan and add half bottle of Franks Red Hot Sauce

In a separate bowl, add cream cheese and blue cheese.  Stir until smooth.

Spoon cheese mixture over chicken and add remaining hot sauce

Bake for 20 min or until mixture is heated through.  When it starts to bubble, its ready.

Add cheddar cheese and place back in over until melted.

(of course I didn't get an after picture...again...because the hubs got to it first)

This is a great dip for chips but you could also use crackers or veggies.  It is also easy to double the dish.  Some people have doubled the amount of chicken and the amount of cream cheese only.  Makes a more thick dip.

Just in cause you were wondering, here are the Nutrition facts for the dip.
