One of my favorite parts of fall is football season. Not because of my allegiance to my college alma mater but rather thanks to the many good eats during the big game tailgate parties. Friends around here take tailgating seriously, with dedicated RVs decked out in their school colors and faithful pre-game festivities centered around … food.
Who can say no to that?
This dip is a conglomeration of two of my favorite pre-game appetizers: tortilla cream cheese chip dip and Buffalo wings. Pretty much the best of both worlds, wouldn’t you say?
Buffalo Chicken Dip
Makes 3 cups
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup sour cream
1 cup Blue Cheese, crumbled (plus additional for garnish)
½ cup carrot, diced
½ cup celery, diced
2 tablespoons butter, divided
¼ cup Frank’s® hot sauce
8 ounces cooked chicken, diced
tortilla chips for dipping
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and sour cream and beat well with a fork until smooth in consistency. Add Blue Cheese crumbles, carrot and celery and combine.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add Frank’s hot sauce, mix well and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add chicken, tossing well to coat. Let chicken mixture cool and then add to cream cheese mixture, mixing lightly. Serve with additional Blue Cheese crumbles and tortilla chips for dipping.
