Buffalo chicken dip:

2 packages cream cheese
half bottle (6-10 ounces) of ranch dressing
half bottle of Frank’s Red Hot buffalo sauce
2 large cans of canned white meat chicken
1 cup of sharp cheddar shredded cheese, stirred in at end

I make this in a crock pot and serve with tortilla chips or crusty bread. Super easy and a huge crowd pleaser. It’s already cooked, so you just need to get it hot enough to be melty.

@MeghanFly:  Um. This is like the worst surprise EVER. THEY should be the ones bringing stuff! They can’t expect you to just have a party waiting to go when you weren’t expecting people!

That said… if I was throwing a small party at the last minute, I’d go to Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s and get premade or toss-in-the-oven apps and mini desserts. Maybe some fancy cheese & crackers. A few bottles of bubbly and some fruit. 

Honestly, don’t sweat it. I know they thought it would be fun or whatever but it’s actually INSANE for people to drop by like that. I really, REALLY hope they are bringing food with them.

Chips, dip, and I’d order pizza and wings!

@cmbr:  This is my favorite recipe in the entire world. I seriously make this recipe 3-4X a year, and DH and I sit down and eat it for dinner. That is how much we love it.

@BrandNewBride:  I second order in pizza. They surprised you so a) you have an excuse and b) they might chip in 😉

Aww how sweet! I love it when things turn out better than expected.  Youve got a lovely, albeit spontaneous for us planners, group of friends 🙂

Sounds like they  still have a college dorm mentality.  I am sure their spontaneous hearts were in the right place, but maybe the lightbulb is starting to go on for some of them.
