Buffalo Chicken Dip: One Thing You'll All Agree on for the Super Bowl
Ther Super Bowl is heading our way - on February 3, the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers will go head-to-head during the biggest sporting event of the year.
In my kitchen, however, the rival is generally between those who do and those who do not like blue cheese. Lucky for me, those who do not usually lose. I force it on them by sprinkling it on salads. I make pastas dedicated to it, I sing its praises by purchasing a giant container of it at Costco so we are forced to eat it daily. Those who do not don’t stand a chance.
But even I have a soft spot, and so I try to make blue cheese consumption for the single "those who do not" member of my family enjoyable and pleasant, masking it in other flavors, mellowing it by mixing it with cream cheese to be spread on crackers, and tucking it safely inside Super Bowl dips like this one.
Buffalo Chicken Dip takes all the flavors you love from buffalo chicken wings and reinvents them into a fun dippable form. Serve it with chips and vegetables. It's the perfect side for Super Bowl Sunday whether you're on the blue cheese side, the Giants' side or the Patriots' team.
