Potluck Favorites

Here are some Potluck dishes that are extremely popular among guests.  Since I have had great success with them, I wanted to share them.  At times, I would be lost on what to bring to a Potluck.  Then I worry about if it’s something that everybody is going to eat.  That is why I came up with some of my favorite recipes that were a success at the potlucks I have attended.  The first one is Buffalo Chicken Dip.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

I first tasted this recipe at a Lia Sophia party many years ago.  I asked the host for the recipe and surprisingly she gave it to me.  It has been a sure success for me ever since.  I tend to take it to football parties.  This dish compliments any sporting event. It was so popular with my family to the point I would make it if we’re just watching the game or having family night. I always accompany this dish with On the Border tortilla chips.  I hope you enjoy. Once you’ve tried it, I would love your feedback .


3-4 Boneless chicken breast

2 packages cream cheese

16 oz Ranch Dressing

1 Franks Hot Sauce

1 Bag of Cheese


Boil the chicken until completely done.  Once done shred and place the chicken in a casserole dish.  Next melt the cream cheese and the whole bottle of ranch dressing together.  Mix in with the chicken.  Add the hot sauce, I would start with adding a little at a time.  The more hot sauce you add the hotter the dish will be.  Lastly, mix in a little cheese.  Mix everything together and spread the remaining cheese on top.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 min.

If you are taking a dessert to a Potluck, this one will get people talking.  It’s called a Crack Cake.  They call it Crack Cake because you can’t eat just one piece.  I actually got this recipe off Pinterest about three to four years ago.  It’s been popular with friends and families ever since.  Hope you enjoy.  Once again if you try this recipe I would love your feedback.

Crack Cake


1 box Duncan Hines cake mix (yellow)

1/4 cup  of Brown Sugar

1 box Vanilla Instant Pudding mix

2 teaspoon Cinnamon

4 Eggs

3/4 cup  of Water

3/4 cup  of oil

1/2 cup of white wine ( I use Moscato)


1 Stick of Butter

1 cup of Sugar

1/4 cup of white wine


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a Bundt cake pan. Mix the above ingredients by hand or hand mixer.  Bake for one hour.  When it comes poke holes in the cake, and pour the glaze over it.  Let it cool, and then flip out of pan onto cake plate.

The other potluck favorite is a salsa.  This was gone in thirty minutes.  This recipe came from my sister-in-law at a Potluck.  I also accompany this with tortilla chips.  I would love feedback on this recipe as well.

Cucumber Salsa


3-4 English cucumbers

2-3 Roma tomatoes

Apple Cider Vinegar (to your liking)

Garlic salt


Canned Jalapeno (7 oz)

Canned Chilies

1/2 Red Onion

Dry Ranch Packet


Chop into small pieces the cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions.  Mix together.  Add the remaining ingredients.  Season with the Garlic salt and Cumin to your desired taste.  Don’t add the whole can of Jalapenos. Only add a little at a time depending on how spicy you want the salsa.  Also, I add only half of the green chilies, but make it to your taste.

These are three recipes that has always worked for me when I attend Potlucks.
