  • 4 cups of cooked shredded chicken
  • ½ cup creamy buffalo hot sauce
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar
  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup
  • ½ cup ranch dressing
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 5 cups tater tots - thawed
  • 3 stalks of celery sliced + leaves
  • 4 green onions chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cheddar cheese, chicken, hot sauce, soup, and half of the celery. It is important to note that you can add more hot sauce if you like it super spicy, so taste and season accordingly.
  • Pour chicken mixture into a greased 9”x9” pan and top with the thawed tater tots.
  • Bake for 30 minutes uncovered.
  • Drizzle the blue cheese dressing on top of the tots, sprinkle with blue cheese, green onions, celery, and celery leaves. Serve with more buffalo sauce if desired.


If you are in a pinch, you can use a few cans of canned chicken. I know it sounds weird, but I've done it before and it turns out just as good without all of the extra work!
