I’m not sure if I love football because of the game or the food. After being a Miami Dolphin fan for over 40 years, it’s safe to say a majority of these past seasons, the football food has been the highpoint!
You know I love Buffalo wings, mostly because I’m addicted to hot sauce! You’ve seen my recipes for wings and recently for Sweet Potato Fries with Buffalo Chicken. But, sometimes, you need a hot dip, and you need it now! This recipe fills the bill. There are tons of versions of Hot Buffalo Wing Dip, so use this as a guideline to make the one you like best. The ingredients that make this dip so perfect for me is Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. There’s just something about this that is super spicy but not hurtful! I use deli chicken as a shortcut, but you can use leftover chicken if you have it. Boar’s Head has a Blazing Buffalo chicken that just adds a little bit of somethin’ somethin’ to the dip, and Fritos corn chips bring the whole experience to critical addiction levels!
Look at all these fixins going into the dip. YUM! Now you're ready to make this awesome recipe. GOOOOOOOOO Dolphins!
Hot Buffalo Wing Dip
Serves a Crowd
15 Minute Cuisine
Ok. There are about a hundred versions of this dip, but the one thing they all have in common is that the end result is gooey, Buffalo spiced and incredibly addicting!
2 tablespoons butter
4 ounces spicy deli chicken (I like Publix Blazing Buffalo Chicken breast), diced
1 small white onion, peeled and diced
4 celery ribs, sliced thin
2 (8-ounce) blocks cream cheese
4 ounces, grated sharp cheddar cheese, 1 cup
4 ounces hot pepper sauce (Frank’s Red Hot is my choice!!), more if you are crazy
Corn chips for dipping (Fritos or Scoops are the best)
Heat the butter in a medium sauté pan over medium high heat. Add the chicken, onion and celery ribs to the pan. Cook until the veggies are soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the cream cheese to the pan. Reduce the heat to medium and stir to soften. Add the cheddar cheese and hot pepper sauce. Keep stirring until everything is melted together.
At this point you are ready to dig in. However, you can pour the dip into a baking dish and keep warm in the oven until kick off.
