I can’t even tell y’all how excited I am about the beginning of football season…actually, my whole family is (as in, watching College GameDay together each Saturday morning is a highly-anticipated event at our house). NFL pre-season started a couple weeks ago, of course, but college football is up next and that’s where our hearts are. Yup, over the years, I’ve officially morphed into one of those crazy football ladies, and I’ve apparently brainwashed my kids along the way. We love watching it on TV…we love going to games…and we love using game day as an excuse to pig out on all of our favorite football-friendly grub!

Not only that, but this recipe is a breeze to throw together. Just mix up some cream cheese, Buffalo wing sauce, blue cheese dressing (plus additional crumbles), and diced chicken. Spread in a baking dish, top with more cheese, and bake until hot and bubbly.

As far as dippers, feel free to use your favorites. Celery sticks are a natural choice, but baguette slices, crackers, or tortilla chips make tasty Buffalo Chicken Dip vessels as well.
