I am a sucker for buffalo chicken!

Of course, I don’t like it to be TOO spicy, but I definitely want a little kick of heat.

And blue cheese? No. Not in my buffalo chicken, but you’re welcome to use it in yours. I’ve included the option in this recipe for you.

I’m a ranch girl myself, though. I just love the combo of buffalo sauce and ranch. I think it’s perfect!

This keto buffalo chicken dip is super creamy and cheesy, with loads of tender chicken, and it’s easy to customize the spice level to your preference. Keep reading for all of the details!

This recipe is really easy to stir together and bake, but checkout this crockpot buffalo chicken dip too!

Spicy or Mild:

I’ve found that the easiest way to make this buffalo chicken dip more spicy is to use Frank’s Red Hot rather than Frank’s Wing Sauce.

The traditional Frank’s hot sauce is spicier than the wing sauce and you can sub it in at a 1:1 ratio here, since they’re both liquid.

If you want it EXTRA spicy, stir in a teaspoon or two (or three or more, if you really like it hot) of ground cayenne pepper.

We find this dip to be on the mild side when we use Frank’s Wing Sauce. All of the cream cheese and cheddar cheese really mellow the wing sauce out, so even if it feels like a lot going in, I think you’ll find that even the kiddos won’t find this one too spicy.
