This layered buffalo chicken bean dip is a mash up of the classic bean dip and buffalo chicken dip! It’s loaded with spicy-tangy flavor and has something for everyone. Perfect for your next party or tailgate!



For Bean Layer:

  • 1 (15-oz) can refried beans
  • ¼ cup buffalo hot sauce

For the Ranch Cream Cheese Layer:

  • 1 (8-oz) block of cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup ranch dressing
  • Pinch of salt

For the Buffalo Chicken Layer:

  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken (See NOTE)
  • ½ cup buffalo hot sauce

For the Cheese Layer:

  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar or jack cheese (or a combo)
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled

For the Cold Toppings:

  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 4 scallions, diced
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved or diced
  • ¼ cup blue cheese crumbles (optional)
  • ¼ cup ranch dressing, for drizzling
  • Additional buffalo hot sauce, for drizzling

Tortilla chips, crackers, and/or veggies for dipping


For the Bean Layer:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and spray a large baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Mix together the beans and hot sauce until well combined. Spread evenly over the bottom of the baking dish.

For the Ranch Cream Cheese Layer:

  1. Wipe out the bowl used for the beans and add the cream cheese and ranch dressing. Stir well to combine. Season with a little salt.
  2. Spread in an even layer on top of the bean layer in the baking dish.

For the Buffalo Chicken Layer:

  1. Wipe out the same bowl again (if a little ranchy cream cheese is left in the bow, it won;t hurt anything). Add the chicken and buffalo sauce and toss to combine.
  2. Spread the chicken out in an even layer on top of the cream cheese layer in the baking dish.

For the Cheese Layer:

  1. Top the buffalo chicken layer with the shredded cheese and crispy bacon.
  2. Bake the dip in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until everything is warm and gooey and the cheese is thoroughly melted.

For the Cold Toppings:

  1. Top the hot dip with the diced avocado, scallions, tomatoes, and blue cheese.
  2. Drizzle the ranch and buffalo sauce over top, as you like.

Serve the dip warm with desired dippers on the side.


This is a great recipe to use up leftover chicken. You can also use a store-bought rotisserie chicken here. I’ve done both and both versions are great!
