Buffalo Chicken Dip

1 package cream cheese, softened
1 can chicken, drained
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
1/2 cup ranch dressing
8 ounces shredded Colby Jack cheese

I like to use the lowfat Neufchatel cheese
on most occasions.
Frank's Red Hot Wing Sauce is always a favorite.
And this weekend, perhaps leftover turkey 
would be a suitable substitute for the canned chicken.

You have the option of combining the ingredients 
with your electric mixer...

Or layering them in your oven-proof pie plate.

Sprinkle with Shredded Cheese.
Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

Serve with bread, celery sticks or torilla chips.

Enjoy the big game!
