(Inside: Let’t there be spice! He who controls the spice…Ok. Sorry…I’ll stop. Because it’s all about the Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip and how good it is. Not necessarily my love of pop-culture. Right.)
Look, I love an easy recipe.
Especially if I have several people coming over for a little party and I am planning on making too much food for us and thus over-cooking.
It’s actually one of my favorite pastimes.
One of my favorites lately is this quick and easy appetizer is perfect for tail-gaiting parties and other informal get-togethers. Just toss all the ingredients into a instant pot, turn it on, and viola!
You have a tasty and delicious dish your guests will love (and you can be sure they’ll ask for the next time you’re planning a get-together…it’s that good).
The amount of heat can be adjusted easily to suit individual tastes by increasing or decreasing the amount of hot sauce and jalapeno used.
Although the serving suggestions offered below are gluten-free, this tasty dip can also be served with crackers or crusty bread.
So, you just go ahead and pin this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Dip, because yeah.
And then you have it for when you’re planning a party.
