This dish is super easy to make and really just subbing out the chicken for cauliflower. Let's dive in on how to make it. 

Feeds a crowd (8-10 people) 


  • 1 small head of cauliflower
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil spray
  • 2 blocks of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup (or 3/4 cup, depending on tolerance to spice) Frank's Red Hot Buffalo sauce (has to be Frank's)
  • 1 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1.5 cups sharp cheddar, shredded
  • Dippies: tortilla chips, pita chips, carrots, celery, etc. 

  1. Prep a cooking sheet with parchment paper and pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Wash and cut cauliflower into small florets-- small enough to fit on a tortilla chip.
  3. Spread florets onto the prepped cooking sheet with parchment paper. Spray cooking oil over the florets and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook cauliflower for about 20 mins. Once browned, remove from the oven and let cool. Don't turn the oven off!
  5. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, hot sauce, ranch dressing, and 3/4 cup of cheddar.
  6. Once all combined, add the cauliflower to the mix by gently folding it in. You want to be gentle so the florets don't break apart!
  7. In a 9x13 dish, add the mixture and spread it out evenly, using a spatula. Sprinkle the additional 3/4 cup of cheddar over the top of the dish. 
  8. Bake the dish at 400 degrees for another 20 minutes or until you start to see bubbling around the edges. 
  9. For an extra crispy top, broil for 2-3 mins (be careful, this can burn fast!) until you start to see browning. 
  10. Remove the dip from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. It will be HOT HOT HOT!
  11. Grab your favorite dippies: tortilla chips, pita chips, carrots, celery and enjoy.
