Buffalo Chicken appetizers = love

Buffalo chicken dip is a staple gameday food and that status is well-deserved. Whenever it’s present at a party I graze on it relentlessly. So good.

You can always find me with a chip in hand, nibbling on a full plate, or standing by the cheese platters. I love me some appetizers.

I also have a very special place in my heart for all things Mexican food, from savory street corn salsa to a lighter blueberry salsa. So why not combine these two culinary loves into a dish that can best be described as buffalo chicken infused with a little fiesta!

How to: Prep the ingredients

One of my favorite things about this recipe (besides its deliciousness), is how little prep is involved.

It’s like a dump cake but for buffalo chicken dip! It could not be easier to grab your ingredients, pour in the pan, and go.

The only prep required is dicing the poblano pepper and shredding the cheese if needed. That’s all!

Now that you have your ingredients let’s get started.

How to: make buffalo chicken enchilada dip

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Start by sauteing a diced poblano in a cast iron pan over medium heat. Poblanos can have tough skins so it’s important for it to soften a little.

Mix in corn and diced green chilies and cook for about 10 minutes. The corn and green chilies have been sitting in lots of liquid in their cans and that needs to cook off.

  1. I’m vegetarian and I can see this being super yummy with an Impossible ground “beef” substitute or something similar.

  2. I’m from Buffalo and love Buffalo chicken. While I have eaten Buffalo Chicken dip many times, I have never seen one that combine it with some Mexican zing! Very interesting. Would love to give it a try.. Thanks!

    Ingredients are mostly very common, I love this recipe! Really love your food blog, Kalin! It looks mouth-wateringly delicious. Thanks for sharing! Will pin! 😄 xx

  4. What a fun twist on the typical chicken dip! I made buffalo chicken dip for the Super Bowl the other night because it’s one of my family’s favorites! A fiesta version would be really neat to try next time. I’d swap Frank’s Red for Tabasco or Texas Pete.

    Oh my God I could totally do this with jackfruit and vegan cheese. I love how it has minimal ingredients but yet looks so delicious. And that char on the side of the cast iron pan. Delish!
