Serves: 12 - 18
Ingredients
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup hot sauce + extra for garnish - Frank's is my favorite!
  • ½ cup blue cheese dressing
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 18 sheets phyllo dough
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons blue cheese crumbles
  • butter or olive oil
Instructions
Prepare dip
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine chicken, ½ cup hot sauce, blue cheese dressing and softened cream cheese.
  3. Place mixture in small casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes until heated through.
Prepare phyllo cups
  1. While the dip is baking, prepare the phyllo cups.
  2. On a clean work surface, get one sheet of phyllo dough then spray with olive oil (or lightly brush with butter)
  3. Stack another phyllo sheet on top then spray with oil then repeat with a third layer
  4. Using a sharp knife (or pizza cutter) cut the long side of the stacked phyllo sheets down the middle creating two long rectangles. Slice each long rectangle in half lengthwise.
  5. Cut the short length in half then cut each half twice creating 24 squares.
  6. Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray then press one stack of phyllo squares into the muffin cup.
  7. Take a second stack of phyllo squares and turn the points opposite of the original square then press into the same cup to cover the whole muffin cup.
  8. Continue this process until you have 72 mini muffin cups filled (three 24 cup pans)
  9. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Assembly
  1. Fill each baked phyllo cup with a teaspoon of the warm dip.
  2. Sprinkle with a few drops of hot sauce, a few blue cheese crumbles and a slice of celery.
  3. Serve warm.
