Some of my dearest and probably longest known friends, Julia and Elizabeth, threw a Pintrest Christmas Craft Party that you can read about on here on their blog. Each person brought a pinterest inspired food and we did a couple crafts they had found on pinterest. It was big time fun!
My food contribution was Buffalo Chicken Dip. I picked it because I basically love 4 out of 5 ingredients. I love cheese, cream cheese, wing sauce, chicken, and sour cream. The 5th ingredient is ranch or blue cheese salad dressing. Actually I changed the recipe, it called for 1/2 cup ranch or blue cheese, and after research of other recipes, I changed it to 1/4 cup ranch and 1/4 cup sour cream, just because ranch isn't my fave. I also used canned chicken, which usually never would, but it was a matter of time and I frankly couldn't tell the difference. Here is the adapted recipe:
16oz of canned chicken (I bought one big can and one small can)
1/2 cup Franks Wing Sauce (not hot sauce) ( wasn't sure what the originally recipe wanted so I had to make a call, I went for the less intense and I think it was the right call.)
4 oz of shredded Cheddar Jack cheese (any type you like will do), which my measurement was "2 handfuls" (half in mix, half on top before baking)
1 block cream cheese, softened.
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 ranch dressing.
(most of these could be substituted for low/no fat version, but I went for all the calories!)
Combine and pour into glass dish. I used a 8X8 Pyrex. Then sprinkle the other half of cheese on top.

YUM YUM. I served with tortilla chips and celery. It was all gone, perhaps because I probably ate half on my own.
No cost on this one, you know what food costs ;)
