As a take on buffalo chicken wings, buffalo chicken dip is a creamy appetizer often enjoyed during football season.

How long buffalo chicken dip lasts depends entirely on what temperature it's being stored. For food safety, any dip containing cream cheese or sour cream should not be left at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

When stored properly, buffalo chicken dip can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. If you're storing dip in a standard freezer, you'll be able to keep it for up to 3 months. In a deep freezer, properly stored dip can last up to 6 months.

Make your buffalo chicken dip all the way up until the heating/baking step. Place the mixed dip in an airtight, freezer-safe container and put it in the freezer.

Bring your dip completely to room temperature. This will prevent condensation from building up in the container and contributing to freezer burn. Place the dip into an airtight freezer-safe container. If you are using a freezer bag, be sure to push out all of the air from the bag before sealing.

It is important that the container you choose be an airtight container. While it can be tempting to leave it in the baking dish and cover it with aluminum foil or plastic wrap, you will end up with freezer burn.

JUST REMEMBER Anytime you are freezing a dairy-based dip, you are risking the texture of the dip changing. Especially if it isn't frozen properly.

To thaw frozen buffalo dip, place it in the refrigerator to slowly defrost. Because the dip has cream cheese, this will help the texture stay creamy and avoid separation.
