With the Super Bowl coming up, everyone will be needing some great appetizer and snack recipes! 

Today's recipe is perfect to serve at your next game day party. If you're a buffalo chicken lover, then this recipe is for you! 

Cheesy, meaty goodness with a little heat! So heavenly and besides, who doesn't love dips? They are my favorite party food.

I love buying rotisserie chicken from my local Sam's Club to use in recipes like this. It's such a great time saving shortcut and budget friendly. 

After you pull off all the chicken, use the rest to make some delicious homemade chicken broth! One inexpensive chicken equals two or three recipes depending on what you make with it.
