It’s no secret that Kevin and I love spending time with our friends. We love having them over, we love visiting at their place, we just love being with those who make us happy.

It’s also no secret among our friend group that I have this blog.

Our buds are pretty good about it, they take it in stride when I subject them to recipes in testing. Or hollering “hand’s off!” before I take a couple of quick photos.

Last night, some of our friends dropped by after hockey practice and luckily for them, I had already taken photos of this buffalo chicken dip. We dug in. It was hella delicious.

This recipe is dedicated to our friends putting up with my shite.

How to serve

This recipe is perfect for game day, your Super Bowl party, or any other time you need a quick and easy appetizer.

I always serve my dip with carrot sticks, celery sticks, and baguette rounds. I’m of the opinion that this spicy dip shines when served on crusty bread.

Make ahead?

Most definitely!

This dip can be mixed up to 3 days in advance. Simply remove it from the fridge, transfer to your skillet, and bake when ready!

I am a cast iron advocate. I use cast iron whenever and wherever possible. But that’s because it’s got so many awesome qualities.

Sure you can bake this dip in any oven-safe baking dish. But the cast iron will keep the dip hot and dippable for a LOT longer than any other dish.

You can get a small 6.5″ cast iron skillet like mine on Amazon!
