Morgan’s Buffalo Chicken Dip

If you like buffalo wings in traditional buffalo wing style, here’s a recipe for you!

My friend, Morgan, had been talking about this dip for quite some time before I actually asked her for the recipe.  And when my sister’s family was here over Thanksgiving weekend, I decided to give it a shot.  After feeding the kids lunch, Blake and I sat down with Jessica and her husband, Scott, to a big bowl of this dip and a variety of dippers.  That’s all I made for our big kids lunch.  And we were happy as all get-out.  It was every bit as delicious as Morgan had described, and we devoured it in no time.

Do you know about Frank’s RedHot sauce?  It’s what gives this dip its buffalo wing sauce flavor.  And it is awesome!  I’ve always been accustomed to the Tabasco style hot sauce, and truthfully, I’m not the biggest of fans.  Then a friend turned me on to Frank’s, and our family has made this our condiment of choice.  We dash this bright and flavorful sauce on eggs, frozen pizza, and macaroni and cheese.  And it’s fantastic in this Zippy Chicken Mushroom Soup, featured by Kristen of Dine and Dish. (Thanks Kristen – this is now one of my family’s favorite soups!)

This dip could easily be enjoyed any time of year.  But what’s stopping you from trying it out this week?!  Impress your family and friends at your New Years celebration.  You’ll be crowned their 2011 hero.
