With final exams here, the majority of us are in crunch mode. A finals week diet includes candy and any other type of junk food we can get our hands on. In all honesty, the dreaded “freshman fifteen” doesn’t just magically stop happening once you become a sophomore. It continues for the rest of your college years and decides to make its appearance finals week every year. “Finals fifteen” is probably a more accurate term.

I recently found a buffalo chicken dip recipe that will definitely complement your go-to bag of tortilla chips, crackers or pretzels during finals week. I promise anyone who loves wing night will love this recipe. It will make your “finals fifteen” completely worth it.

Frank’s Redhot Buffalo Chicken Dip

  • Start to finish: 25 minutes
  • Servings: 4 cups


  • 1 8-ounce package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Frank’s Redhot Buffalo Wings Sauce or choice hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch dressing
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken (prepared or canned)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or choice shredded cheese


Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all of the ingredients into a small baking dish. Bake 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through and bubbly, then stir. Serve with chips, crackers or even vegetables.

Baking Bits

This recipe tastes great if you add some bacon bits to the mix. Everything is better with bacon! You can use canned chicken to make this recipe prep go much quicker or you can even dice up pre-cooked, seasoned grilled chicken that you can purchase at your local grocery store.

Enjoy! Good luck during finals week!
