By Chris Cinto

1 Fully Cooked Rotisserie Chicken

2 Packages of Cream Cheese  8 oz.

1 Stick of Butter (soft or almost melted)

1 Package of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

1 Bottle of Frank's Buffalo Wing Hot Sauce

Directions:   In an appropriate sized Crock Pot, press the cream cheese into an even layer across the entire bottom of crock pot.   Strip the meat off of the Rotisserie Chicken and shred it throroughly.  In a seperate bowl, combine the chicken with butter and hot sauce.   Layer the chicken mix evenly on top of your cream cheese layer in the crock pot.   (Works best if you leave the butter out until it is at room temperature and cut it up before mixing it with the chicken & hot sauce).   Top it off with a small even layer of Mozzarella Cheese and set crock pot on High for approximately 1 Hour.  (you can pair it with any chip you choose, but it seems to go best with Frito's Scoops).
