Buffalo Chicken Dip. Because no one looks sexy with wing sauce on their face.
Super Bowl Sunday is here. I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait to watch the G-men beat the living $@*! out of the Patriots (God, I hate Tom Brady). But before we watch the big game, I'll need to prepare for the second most exciting act of the day: the food.

Of course, when I think football, I think of beer and wings. I love me some Buffalo wings, but making them for a crowd can be quite the hassle. Enter the buffalo chicken dip - my solution to wings made easy (like, almost too easy). This dip, filled to the brim with shredded chicken, blue cheese and hot sauce, is definitely large enough to feed a crowd. Serve it with mixed veggies, chunks of warm sourdough bread, or crisp tortilla chips.

Here's how to make it:

Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip

  • 2-3 chicken bone-in breasts or store-bought rotisserie chicken
  • ½ to ¾ cup of your favorite hot sauce
  • 8 oz bottle of good quality blue cheese dressing
  • 16 oz cream cheese, brought to room temperature
  • Shredded sharp cheddar cheese for topping
  • Chopped scallions for topping

For serving: Assorted veggies (carrots, celery, etc.), fresh baked sourdough bread, tortilla chips.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Season chicken breasts lightly with salt and pepper. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray, and bake chicken breasts until browned and cooked through. Let cool. Remove skin and using two forks, shred the chicken.

In a large bowl, toss shredded chicken with hot sauce. Mix in cream cheese and blue cheese dressing.

Pour into a large baking dish and top with shredded cheddar. Bake for 25-30 minutes until top is golden brown and bubbly.

Top with chopped scallions and serve with veggies, warmed sourdough bread, and lightly toasted tortilla chips. Dig in!

As a Native Texan, I prefer Blue cheese.  And speaking of, why are so many new transplants writing the food reviews here?  There are plenty of folk here that could do this job, as well.

You can use either blue cheese or ranch. (This is a recipe on the Red HOT website)  I've made this many times and it's a huge hit ... it's amazing!!  Serving it with chips is delicious and if you want to be "healthy" it tastes really good with celery too.

Bleu cheese is nast, as Texan as it may be give me some effing hidden valley over moldy cheese.

As a native Upstate New Yorker, I LOVE making this dish with bleu cheese for those Texans that crave nothing other than their beloved ranch and wings...just for spite.
