This Buffalo Chicken Cheese Dip was inspired by traditional buffalo wings with all the fixings. I love having wings at our game day parties, especially football, but they are so incredibly messy! I swear, sauce and dressings end up everywhere. This dip lets you have all of those amazing flavors in a compact, easy, and convenient way.
Cheese dips are seriously one of my favorite things when entertaining or watching a game. We are some big cheese lovers! And they are pretty popular with our family and friends. Win-win.
I like to keep the heat level relatively mild in the house. Partially because not everyone can handle a lot of heat, but mainly because I like to pile on an abnormally large amount of dip on each chip. And I really do not like my mouth being on fire, so making things mild is the best compromise.
I find that my oval baking dish, pictured here, is perfect for cheese dips! A lot of surface area for that crunchy, gooey cheese on top without being too large. You can use this affiliate link to find my baking dish here.
This Buffalo Chicken Cheese Dip is easily customizable! Want it spicy? Increase your amount of buffalo sauce or add some hot sauce in there. Not a blue cheese fan? You can just leave it out all together.
I always know that I have to serve more cheese dip than anything as it is always so popular. What snacks or appetizers are a tradition at your home-gating events?
