7-Layer Buffalo Chicken Dip

This is a sponsored post by Challenge butter, but the text and opinions are all mine. Thank you for supporting brands that make Kylee's Kitchen possible!

Memorial Day is traditionally the kickoff to summer. Everyone loves to break out their grills and host cookouts. But not everyone can be the grill master. Someone needs to get the party started with appetizers!

My mom used to make a dip called “7 layer dip.” It seems to be very popular, and there are a lot of variations of it online. Three years ago, I saw one variation of it from Serious Eats incorporating buffalo chicken, and I still haven’t stopped thinking about it. Why on earth didn’t I make it sooner?! So I finally tried it out, and it couldn’t be easier or tastier. I also love how unique it is. I bet if you show up to a party with it, no one will have had it before. Uniqueness plays a huge part when I’m trying to decide what to make for a party.

I always make sure to use Challenge cream cheese in my dips because it’s made form incredibly fresh 100% cream and there are no additives.

7-Layer Buffalo Chicken Dip
  • 1 (16-ounce) can refried beans
  • 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
  • 2 (8-ounce) blocks Challenge cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing (you can use all ranch if you don't have blue cheese)
  • 2 cups chicken, shredded
  • 2/3 cups buffalo sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 2/3 cups grilled or roasted corn kernels
  • 5 strips bacon, crumbled
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Tortilla chips or celery sticks for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray baking dish with nonstick spray. I used an 8x8 glass casserole dish so you can see the layers.
  2. Stir together the refried beans and wing sauce. Spread it in the baking dish as the first layer.
  3. Mix together the cream cheese, ranch dressing, and blue cheese dressing. Gently spread it on top of the refried beans.
  4. Mix together the chicken, buffalo sauce, and mozzarella cheese. Spread it on top of the cream cheese layer. 
  5. Bake for 15 minutes minutes.
  6. Top it with blue cheese crumbles immediately when it comes out of oven.
  7. Layer corn, bacon, and green onions on top.
  8. Serve with tortilla chips or celery sticks.
