Buffalo Chicken Chips

I think that Buffalo Chicken Wings are the most popular game day snacks. And now you can turn this classic into just about anything. I love making My World Famous Buffalo Chicken Dip. It's just the best ever. So instead of whipping up that recipe, I decided to put my twist on nachos & bleu cheese chips that are also popular bar snacks. I used a huge bag of Cape Cod Potato Chips, instead of tortilla chips, and topped them with a thick layer of shredded buffalo wing cheese (you can also substitute sharp cheddar cheese), buffalo chicken, hot buffalo sauce, crumbled blue cheese, crispy bacon, ranch dressing drizzle, and fresh chopped chives. You can make these chips as spicy as you want, and we like it spicy so theres always a little extra hot sauce on the side. This appetizer is super easy too because you just layer the chips in a baking dish and throw it in the oven when you're ready to eat! Enjoy :)

Buffalo Chicken Chips
For the Chips:
1 Large Bag of Cape Cod Original Potato Chips
2C Buffalo Wing Cheese, Shredded (or you can substitute sharp cheddar cheese)
1C Blue Cheese, Crumbled
1 Warm Rotisserie Chicken, Shredded
1C Buffalo Wing Sauce
8 Slices of Bacon, Cut into Cubes & Fried until Crispy
Ranch Dressing, For Drizzling
Fresh Chopped Chives, For Garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking dish with Pam. Spread the cape cod chips into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the shredded buffalo wing cheese on top of the chips. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the shredded chicken and buffalo sauce until combined, and then layer the buffalo chicken on top of the cheese. Sprinkle the blue cheese and crispy bacon on top of the chicken in an even layer.
2. Bake the chips in the oven for 20-30 minutes until the cheese is melted and the chips are hot & crispy. Broil in the oven for a few minutes to get the cheese golden brown and bubbly. Remove from the oven and drizzle more buffalo sauce and ranch on top of the chips. Garnish with fresh chopped chives.
3. Serve immediately with hot sauce & ranch dressing on the side for dipping!
