I am bringing buffalo chicken dip when we go tailgating on Saturday. I'd really like to make it the night before since we need to leave nice and early Saturday morning! How well does it reheat? Does it stay nice and creamy or does it tend to separate?

Thanks!

I made some for a football game we watched at home. We had leftovers, so I'd reheat it in the microwave. I think it did fine, if I recall.

I also like to eat it cold, it's totally different, but still very good!

I think it reheats just fine. Our favorite way to eat the leftovers is rolled up in tortillas.

Hmmm...I remember making it for a party once and reheating it the next day without great results. It was still tasty, but I did find that the fats separated out leaving it looking a bit oily. But I didn't care since it was just DH and I eating it so maybe I reheated it too fast. You might have better results if you reheat slowly and stir often.

Good to know, Tango1. I plan on reheating/keep it warm in my fondue pot since I can control the temp in that better than I can in my crock pot.

It does separate once it starts to cool off, but if you mix it up really good, it shouldn't be a problem. I've done that several times.

Here's an idea - Mix it all together except that final layer of cheese you put on the top. Then, when you get to your tailgating event, you can mix it all up again and then put your cheese on top. It will melt in the fondue pot and look nice and fresh still...

Ive made it before and had as leftovers later. It did separate and get oil blotches but I stirred it up and it was just fine. Looked and tasted like it did the first time around.

I think you'll be fine if you stir it before serving.

I love that dip!!!

I make that all the time and it reheats wonderfully. I actually double the recipe so we have leftovers to use.

That is the recipe I use. I'm making this is two weeks.

In the past, I've had a different recipe and thought it was even better...does anyone use a different recipe they like more, and can they provide a link???

Thanks!!!

I use the same recipe as posted BUT use blue cheese dressing not ranch. Real chicken wing eaters use blue cheese to dip their wings in...not ranch...LOL

Not everyone likes blue cheese. And when I'm making a dish for a tailgate of 30+, I'd like to try and please as many people as possible.

Yeah but with enough hot sauce...everything tastes good....LOL. I tend to sometimes make mine too hot (spicy). Oh and I also toss some shredded mozzarella cheese on top.

Oh my mouth is watering!!! LOL

The dip reheated great! I waited until Saturday at the tailgate to add the mozzarella cheese, and I didn't have any issues with the dip separating or turning greasy.

The recipe I used was the one Lizaanne posted.
