Instant Pot Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip

Shilpa
I love making this spicy buffalo chicken dip. It is so easy to throw together on a short notice and extremely delicious. I normally make this at my kids soccer parties, or when I have pot lucks, and of course during Super Bowl parties.
The recipe is very cheesy, delicious, and scores major points with all my guests. I pressure cook the chicken in the instant pot, mix all the ingredients and then bake it.
