buffalo chicken dip

Super Bowl Sunday is upon us! Whether you want to be known as the hostess with the hostess or the guest with the best dish, this is it! (So you can plan accordingly–the chicken is made in a crock pot and then the dip is put in the oven in a baking dish.)

I am a die-hard NY Giants fan! (Yes. Still. Even though our season was embarrassing.) Anyway, since I LOVE football, I would be remiss if I didn’t provide fellow fans a little something to snack on while watching the big-game this Sunday. I’ve made this dip several times and it is always a crowd pleaser. I got it from a co-worker many moons ago and altered it to my own liking. Enjoy!

IMG_1879tara’s tips: I’ve made this by baking the chicken. I’ve made this with different cheeses. I’ve made this by putting the chicken in a food processor instead of shredding it with a fork. Feel free to explore. You can also use ranch dressing if bleu cheese isn’t your thing.
