Buffalo Chicken Dip with Celery
I was never a fan of buffalo chicken. For years I would pass when it was offered at a buffet or on at able with crackers.
Until, one day, I decided to give it a try. I started with a basic recipe then worked to perfect my own version of buffalo chicken dip, which I will now admit to eating right off the spoon when no one is looking!
And while we love serving buffalo chicken dip alongside traditional options such as crackers or tortilla chips, or even with low-carb options including pepperoni chips and cheese crackers, we also really enjoy making our buffalo ants-on-a-log when we top celery with our homemade buffalo chicken dip.
As does pretty much everyone else we have served this dish too. It's super versatile and full of flavor, so it works well as a quick snack, as part of a low-carb or gluten-free meal, or laid out on game day as part of an appetizer spread!
