I’m on a buffalo & ranch kick lately mmkayy? It’s fine, I swear. Between my Chimichurri Chicken Wings with Ranch and Buffal0 & Bacon Chicken Skillet with Ranch & Roasted Brussels Sprouts being so freaking popular this month on the Whole30, I’d say you guys are too! No judgement here. Your (and my) newest obsession? This Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip. Holy moly you guys. Just WOAH.
Can you say Super Bowl parties? YAAAS pleaseandthankyou.
I hope you guys don’t get tired of me talking about football (and football food) because it really is just the freaking best. Even if you don’t like football (weirdos) and get dragged to tailgates or playoffs/Super Bowl watch parties by whomever, you can still enjoy the food and drinks, right?
People ask me all the time why I’m a NY Giants fan even though I grew up in Maryland/right outside of DC (aka PRIME TIME Redskins territory. again, yuck). My parents are from Jersey, and we’ve had season tickets since the first stadium opened (thanks, Grandpa!) so for almost every home game since I was a liiiitle child…well, littler than I am now, anyway…we’d schlep our way about 4 hours up the Jersey Turnpike to
go to the games eat great tailgate food and scream our faces off at the usually horrible Giants. Except when they beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl TWICE heeeeeey! So yes, football and football food have a special place in my heart.
This slow cooker buffalo chicken dip THOUGH. I bet, after making this once or twice, you’ll commit the recipe to heart. Because it’s that easy and that freaking delicious! I brought it to our crossfit holiday party this year and it was GONE loooong before the cheese-villed version! P.s. I don’t know if you’ve ever made or looked at a standard recipe for buffalo chicken dip, but holy balls you guys. There are literally like 4 lbs of cheese in that ish! I don’t care if you’re lactose intolerant or not, that sounds like a recipe for stomach huuuurt.
On to the recipe! For Whole30, I love dipping cucumber, carrots, peppers or jicama in here. Or pouring some over a baked sweet potato, to make a buffalo chicken stuffed sweet potato. Uuuuuum YES getinmybelly. Not Whole30? Go for some plantain or sweet potato chips!
p.s. celery is gross and I hate it with every ounce of my being but I know some people like it for dips and I just love you guys THAT MUCH so I included it as an option here. Even though it totally made everything else on my cutting board taste like celery. which is gross. ew.
