    Do you LOVE Ranch dressing?

    Do you also love any and all forms of hot sauce?

    How 'bout slow cookers? I bet you love the extreme convenience of a good slow cooker.

    If you're not in on the slow cooker game yet, you can get one here.

    Here's how to pack all of those favorites into a single, delicious sandwich.

    First, you'll have to combine boneless, skinless chicken thighs with a bottle of Buffalo sauce in the slow cooker.

    Then, you'll have to wait a while for your slow cooker to work its magic.

    When the chicken is cooked, it'll be so tender that you can shred it with a fork.

    Now is when you make the Ranch queso. Combine Ranch dressing, cream cheese, and shredded cheddar in a medium pot over medium low heat.

    Whisk until everything is melted together and the texture of... well, queso.

    All that's left to do is serve! Spoon the chicken into hot dog or hamburger buns.

    You'll have to use tongs or a slotted spoon so that you don't spoon too much liquid into the buns. That would make them soggy, which would suck.

    Finish things on with a hefty line of queso...

    ... and some chopped scallions. For vegetables.
