Here's the Dish: Creamy Buffalo Ranch Ham Dip

Want a super-simple summer dip that everyone adores? Try this Creamy Buffalo Ranch Ham Dip. My family's addicted to this cool, cream cheese-and-ham sensation.

Creamy Buffalo Ranch Ham Dip gets a Texas-style kick from Wish-Bone Buffalo Ranch Salad Dressing and hot sauce.

It gets a Texas-style kick from Buffalo Ranch Salad Dressing and a touch of Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce. I discovered Wishbone's Buffalo Ranch Dressing when making Tangy Buffalo Ranch Artichoke Dip last Christmas and now we can't get enough of it.

Besides having a gotta-have-it taste, this easy appetizer comes together in a flash so it's perfect when you're time crunched.

You stir together eight, basic ingredients to make this super summer dip. No baking required.

In the kitchen-600.jpgJust soften some cream cheese, mix in seven other ingredients (deviled ham, Buffalo Ranch Dressing, lemon juice, a few spices and hot sauce) and put your creation in the fridge to chill. It's ready for company an hour or so later but I like mixing it up a day ahead.

My family went wild when I served this delightful dip with Triscuit Cracked Pepper and Olive Oil crackers recently. My mom liked it so much she spread the word on Facebook immediately. So whatever dipper you choose, get ready for rave reviews!

Creamy Buffalo Ranch Ham Dip pairs well with Triscuit Cracked Pepper and Olive Oil crackers.

Okay guys, the first time I tried making these I kept thinking to myself that there was no way that these baked chicken wings were ever going live up to the classic fried preparation. But boy was I wrong! There is just something about the combination of the soy, honey and chili flakes that, when baked in the oven, creates a sticky and salty-sweet glaze that is just stick-to-your-ribs good. They are so good, in fact, that they'll blow your mind!
