Best chicken dip EVER

This last week has been super crazy. Braddoc got into a school that is for kids with Autism, we are so excited about it but he is in half day kindergarten and the school is anywhere from 30-45 minutes away, one way. Noah drops him off in the morning before work and I leave to pick him up at 11 and get home around 12:30. The little and I spend a lot of time in the car.

I had several follow ups for my kidney disease (Medullary Sponge Kidney) along with a CT scan  and a couple of appointments for a Dermoid Cyst that they found on my right ovary. And in the middle of all that I woke up in the middle of the night to a nasty sinus infection that was pushing fluid so hard against my ear drum that I thought I had ruptured my right ear drum. My head has been hurting so bad all week. Its the sinus cavity that's above and behind your eyes and I have felt like someone was stabbing me in the forehead and temples. I got put on lots of meds that are making my depth perception totally off and I am ready to just feel healthy again.

Noah's brother woke up from his coma on Valentines day and so we get to talk to him every night on face time. And are really enjoying seeing him and are so grateful that he is awake.

Needless to say through the last week I have not gotten on here and updated much of anything. When I think about sitting down on the computer when I have a few minutes to breath I really just want to rest my head and my eyes, so the blogging got put on the back burner.

Anyway today I wanted to share my ALL TIME favorite dip. We literally make this dip every weekend during College Football season, Roll Tide, and for any gathering that we are going to have. We are trying to save money for when Noah gets out of the military so when Noah and I started to talk about Valentines day we decided we wanted to have Cider, Chicken dip and Peanut Butter M&M's and play some Ticket to Ride. With Noah's brother waking up on Valentines day our SUPER romantic date night plans changed to talking to his brother. So we made up for it through out the week. One night of Ticket to Ride and M&M's and one night of Chicken Dip, Cider and a movie that we both fell asleep too after 25 minutes (we were/ARE exhausted).

This dip is super easy to make and really takes ZERO thought at all.


1 cup of Ranch (I like name brand for this, the generic usually gives too much of a Ranchy taste)
1 cup of mozzerella cheese
1 small can of Chicken
1 8oz block of cream cheese
1/4 Tapatio hot sauce (we have tried other hot sauces and this is by far the best one)

In a crockpot combine all of the ingredients and cook until the cheese's are melted (it takes about 30-45 minutes)
Stir together and ENJOY.

We often times will double the recipe to have leftovers. 
We do a single batch in our small crockpot and a double batch in the large crockpot.

I'm so happy to hear the news about Keyn! I've been kind of stalking, hoping to read something positive about his recovery.

Speaking of recovery, hope you get on the mend soon with everything you are dealing with.

And that is great news about Braddoc and school!

Miss you, dear!
