It’s that time of year: the kids are back in school, the days are alternating between blazingly hot and downright cool… and football is back on TV! I’m not really in to pro football, but I could watch college football all day long — and that’s typically exactly what we do on Saturdays during the fall.
Our whole family looks forward to our Saturday game day get togethers with friends all week, and we have a number of recipes that we like to rotate through for snacks while we’re cheering on the Buckeyes. One of my favorites (which also happens to be one of the easiest to make) is this buffalo chicken dip!
I started with the buffalo chicken dip recipe from Frank’s RedHot and tweaked it to make it more like the buffalo dip that we often order as an appetizer at our favorite local bar and grill. Their dip is a little saucier, with less chicken, and includes cheddar cheese, and I think this is a deliciously close copy.
While they serve their buffalo chicken dip with toasted baguette rounds, and I do actually prefer them, for more convenience, it can be served with tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers, or even celery.
You can also choose the method of preparation that’s easiest for you — it’s equally delicious whether made in the oven or in your slow cooker. I prefer the presentation when it’s made in the oven, but if you’re going to be munching on it all day long, the crockpot is the way to go so it stays warm.
