We all know that watching the Super Bowl is just an excuse to devour buffalo chicken in every form possible. From casserole to sandwiches to honest to goodness wings, we can never get enough. But if we’re really honest with ourselves, buffalo chicken dip might be the best way to serve up the spicy classic. (And let’s be honest, if you don’t have buffalo chicken dip on your Super Bowl party menu, is it even a Super Bowl party?!)
Maybe the biggest reason we love it so much is that it is one easiest Super Bowl appetizers you could make, even easier than making buffalo wings themselves. (Want to make it even easier? Make buffalo dip in your slow cooker.)
All you need to do is stir together:
Chicken: We like using rotisserie, but you can also poach chicken breasts and then shred them if you prefer that method.
Shredded cheese: Cheddar is a go-to for anything buffalo flavored, but gouda and fontina also work well.
Buffalo sauce: Frank’s Red Hot forever and always.
Blue cheese: 100% optional. We know you haters exist, but personally we like how the tangy cheese brightens up the dip.
