Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 ½ Cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 Cups Shredded Chicken
  • 1 (20 Ounce) Package Refrigerated Cheese Tortellini
  • ½ Cup Buffalo Wings Sauce, I use Frank's Red Hot
  • ½ Cup Ranch Dressing
  • 2 Cups Shredded Cheese, We use Cheddar and Mozzarella

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat.  Add the garlic to the melted butter, and stir for about 30 seconds.  Add the flour and whisk until smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Gradually pour the chicken broth into the pot while whisking constantly.  Allow the broth to cook for about 2 minutes, until just slightly thickened.
  • Add the tortellini to the pan and bring to a boil.  Cook for 4 minutes, stirring often to ensure all of the tortellini is cooked through. 
  • Add the shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, and 1 cup of the cheese to the pot and stir well.  Top the tortellini mixture with the remaining cup of cheese, cover the pot with a lid for 2-3 minutes, until cheese is melted.

Notes

NOTE:  For best results, I recommend using freshly shredded cheese right off of the blog instead of pre-shredded, it melts down much more smoothly.
