Tailgate Tuesday: Buffalo Chicken Dip

(note: Tailgate Tuesday posts are special features written for the SideLion Report from the gracious gals of The Thrifty Table. Check in every Tuesday for a new recipe perfect for that week’s tailgate party!)

The first time I had this spicy, creamy, perfect-for-tailgating dip was when my husband, SideLion Lead Blogger Zac Snyder, and I were camping with our friends. Though it was summer, the weather was rainy and bleak, much like fall weather here in Michigan, and this Buffalo Dip warmed us through and through. The combination of hot sauce and cream cheese make a knock-out combination for any football game. This delectable dip may make you wonder why you ever ate buffalo wings off the bone!
