Buffalo chicken dip is always a fan favorite. Whether you make it in a crock pot all day or a 20 minute over the stove, its pretty much a staple at every party I have ever been to!

But the other day I found myself out of those chicken cans and staring at the tuna.

Would it work?

Could I take the buffalo dressing to the tuna and make it taste the same? Good news!

The richness of the cream cheese, the perfect balance of the buffalo dressing, and the drained cans of tun provided a protein power backed snack that doubled over as lunch.

This particular recipe is made as a topping for celery sticks.

That being said, you could easily double up on this recipe to create a casserole dish full of tuna dip, serve hot and with crackers.

How to make Buffalo Tuna Dip

This was my first time using this Hidden Valley Buffalo dressing.

Usually I take the long road and mix wing sauce and ranch, but Hidden Valley took out all the work and combined it.

I was surprised; its pretty good and saved me a step.

Drain your 1 can of tuna and 1 can of chicken.

Heat meat, cream cheese, and buffalo dressing over a low-medium heat until fully combined. Stir often so the dressing doesn’t burn.

Put in a bowl and put in fridge to cool down for approximately an hour.

If you serve mixture while its hot, it will fall right off your celery.

It needs to firm back up.

Once cold, dish out on your celery sticks.

Feel free to top with a little paprika (for color) or drizzle with some extra ranch on top to finish off.

TIP: Celery falls over when left to its own devices. After all, the bottoms are curved!

Its so easy to fix this, especially when serving on a tray.

Simply trim off the back of your celery so they lay flat.

You can slice down just a bare bit of it and boom, flat side.

(psst, use the extra pieces for a bloody Mary 🙂
