i promise you can't tell

So, I don't know what prompted this, but I decided it was time to make some buffalo (not-so) chicken dip.  I compiled various recipes for both vegetarian and meaty buffalo chicken dips and came up with this one.

It's very simple. 
Completely terrible for you.
And absolutely delicious. 

So here you go:

2 packages Morningstar fake chicken, 20-24 oz, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
(I used one package of their buffalo chicken nuggets and one of their grilled chicken slices)
16 oz cream cheese at room temperature, the low-fat version is a good idea here
1 cup ranch dressing
¾ cup Frank’s hot sauce
1 cup shredded cheddar and pepper jack cheese, plus some more for the top
½ cup scallions, sliced

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Mix all ingredients.  
Put mixture into a greased pie pan.
Top with some more shredded cheese and chopped scallions.

Bake for 30 - 45 minutes or until warm in the middle.

Serve it up with some celery and soft pretzels like I did, or whatever you fancy with your buffalo dip.

Yup. Absurd.  
A treat to be had quite infrequently.
