Buffalo Chicken Dip. Jalapeño Popper Dip.


Here are two of the dips I served at the party I hosted on Saturday. I’ve tried a bunch of Buffalo Chicken Dip recipes, but this is one of my favorites. I assembled it early in the day and heated it right before the start of the party. Simple.

I also put together the Jalapeño Popper Dip in the morning. I was a bit nervous about the quantity of serrano chiles, but while the dip was spicy it was not unbearably hot. It was delicious.

Do you ever use the Urban Dictionary? I looked up ‘dip’.

Urban Dictionary definition of dip:
To leave abruptly. To get the hell out of somewhere.

When I saw the Vanilla Ice cd in my date’s cd player, I knew I had to dip.

That’s about right.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Ingredients:

1 8-ounce package cream cheese
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 oz bleu cheese crumbles
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 300°F.

2. Cover the bottom of an 8×8″ baking dish or pie plate with cream cheese.

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, wing sauce and butter. Pour over the cream cheese-filled baking dish. Top with just enough blue cheese and mozzarella to cover (adding too much cheese will cause a thick skin to form that will make eating the dip difficult once the cheese cools).

4. Heat the dip in the oven for 20 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips, Fritos or potato chips alongside for dipping.

Serves 6-8

Directions:

2. Transfer the dip to an oven proof serving dish. Bake at 375℉ for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese starts to turn golden brown on the edges and the dip is bubbly in the middle.

Aztec Camera-Down The Dip

My love affair with Scottish bands started in the 1980s. I adore Aztec Camera. Roddy Frame….that voice, those lyrics. Yum. ‘High Land Hard Rain’ is my favorite album by Aztec Camera but, really, they are all terrific. You can buy their stuff here. Roddy Frame has a website that you can also check out.

I adore this song by Avi Buffalo. Goes good with the chicken dip.
