Buffalo Chicken Dip + Superbowl Ideas

Is everyone ready for SuperBowl Sunday?  Or shall I say "the big game" (why do we have to call it that?)?

I'm ready for a feast of ridiculously unhealthy foods.  I'm finally reaching the point where I'm ready to switch into health mode, so I figured if i'm going to get back on the wagon next week, I may as well go out with a bang on Super Bowl Sunday. 

These Sriracha Lime Chicken Wings have the absolute best flavor. They're oven-baked, so you can eat more than the fried alternatives (at least that's what I tell myself!. 

If you're SuperBowl party will be a little fancier than mine, you can't go wrong with these Goat Cheese Sliders with Blackberry Onion Jam

Of course, everyone loves a fried pickle.  Mix it up with some sweet bread and butters along with the dill chips! 

I'm also a fan of literally anything I can dip a chip in.  This Cheesy Jalapeno Corn Dip is incredibly simple to put together, and can easily be made in advanced. 

If you're grilling, please look no further than my homemade Surfer Dog recipe.  These bad boys were insanely delicious and so easy to make.  

I'm heading to Mike's parents house for the game and I'm going to come armed with this amazing looking Supreme Pizza Dip that I saw online recently.  I'll report back on the results!

For more recipes, check out last year's Game Day Faves post!

Lastly, I wanted to share my favorite Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe, but sadly I have no picture of it. Please forgive me for this, but I absolutely cannot be trusted to make it more than once a year.  I legitimately have zero control around it, and it is beyond addictive. 

Buffalo chicken dip is one of those recipes that everyone has their own version of.  I'm here to tell you my version is the best, so just go with it.  It also could not be easier. Here's how I make it:

* 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
* 2 blocks of cream cheese, cut into cubes*
* 5 oz. Frank's Red Hot Sauce
* 1 c. ranch dressing*
* 1 c. cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350.  On the stove top, melt cream cheese over medium heat.  Stir in rotisserie chicken, hot sauce, and ranch dressing.  Continue to stir until everything is well combined.  Place in an oven safe casserole dish, top with cheddar cheese, and bake for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

I would not skimp with fat free cream cheese or ranch dressing with this recipe, but it has worked well with 1/3 fat cream cheese for me.  Alternately, you can also make this in a crock pot on low until everything is evenly melted (it only takes 2-3 hours on low).  


  1. Oh my goodness, I want to make it all!

  2. Every looks so delicious! I love buffalo chicken dip! Perfect for the lazy party goer like me!
