Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip

Guys, I have made this dip almost every weekend since December. I wish I was joking. I don’t know what it is lately, but it just hits the spot!

I first tried this dip in college and the recipe called for canned chicken and bottled ranch. Since learning more about food I just can’t seem to stomach the canned chicken and think the bottled ranch just doesn’t compare to homemade.

After craving it one day I found this instant pot version from Adventures of a Nurse after a quick google search. The only thing I do differently is 5 oz of hot sauce vs 8 oz.  My sister-in-law made this in her IP and then put it in a casserole dish with blue cheese on top and broiled until melted! So if you’re looking for that little extra, maybe give that a try! Another option is buying mini pastry cups and putting a dollop of dip inside. Then top with crumbled blue cheese or green onion.

I mostly keep it simple and serve with chips and celery.
