The Perfect Buffalo Chicken Dip

The Super Bowl 2011 kickoff (Super Bowl XLV) will probably occur a little after 6:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on February 6, 2011. This year’s game will be the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers. For halftime, the Black Eyed Peas will be performing. This year’s game will be at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington Texas. If you’re like me, and don’t have tickets to the big game, you’ll be enjoying it at your home, or a friend’s with a very large television. For the game, you’ve got to have lots of spicy and tasty dips to serve your guests. This buffalo chicken dip is a perfect homemade delicious recipe. I took the original recipe that consists of lots of pre-made ingredients like canned chicken and bottled salad dressing and changed it into a more fresh homemade version. I included 1/4 cup hot sauce in my recipe, which is spicy, but not too spicy. If you like a lot of heat, add 1/2 cup or more to taste to get a really spicy dip. This dip is a fun way to enjoy the yummy flavors of hot wings with blue cheese dressing without the bones. I serve this dip with lots of fresh celery, carrots and chips or tortilla chips.
