Buffalo Chicken, YUM!

It's officially tailgating season! Can you tell I'm from Wisconsin? Tailgating is just as big of an event as the football game itself: brats, beer, chips & dip, cheese, and more brats!

I'm here to share with you the ultimate football dip - {Healthier} Buffalo Chicken Dip. Trust me, you're going to want to run to the store and get a few ingredients for this dip ASAP!

Trevor and I love this recipe so much that I urge you to make it next Sunday! And, the really great part? It doesn't taste like it's a healthy version of anything! Plus, you can use it as a dip with chips and veggies or you can slap some between some crusty bread and make hot sandwiches with it. Even better? It's made in a slow cooker and takes only a few hours from start to finish.

Totally yummy, totally versatile, totally easy!

The original recipe can be found here, but you'll find my own version below.









You'll need:
1/2 a block (4 oz.) of cream cheese
1 cup fat free sour cream
a small jar (5 oz.) of Frank's hot sauce {insider's tip: try out the different versions of hot sauce that Frank's offers!}
a splash of white wine vinegar
two small or one large cooked chicken breasts
optional: 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles

Note: The blue cheese isn't "optional" in the original recipe, but we've tried it without a few times and while there's a different taste, it can definitely be left out. However, if you do include it in the recipe, you should know that a little goes a long way!

Put everything in the slow cooker and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours. When you're ready to serve it, use two forks to shred the chicken and it's ready to go!

Like I said, we like to use it as a hot sandwich spread with crusty bread, but it's also really good when you dip chips and veggies into it!

Now, I'm guessing you have most - if not all - of the ingredients you need for this delicious dip already so you might as well go ahead and make it for dinner tonight - make your kids and husband some PB&J sandwiches so you can eat it all check to make sure it's tailgate acceptable. {Yeah, right, it'll be gone by tomorrow morning!}

What are some of your favorite tailgate foods?
