Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip

To make this recipe in a crock pot, simply spray your crockpot well with non-stick spray, or use a crockpot liner because of the cheese in this recipe. Then, you’ll follow the same directions for layering the dip in your baking dish for the crock pot. Cook on low for 2-3 hours, until everything is melted and bubbly. This is a great way to keep your dip warm throughout the whole party or gathering you are hosting.
