Super Bowl Recipes


I'm not a football fan, but I'm a food fan. Yes, I'm the gal that can pretend to be into the game, meanwhile shoving yummy treats into my mouth. So, let's celebrate food with some super bowl recipes. Crystal

Buffalo Chicken Dip
2 cans of 10 oz chicken, drained
2 packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup ranch dressing
3/4 cup of hot sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese of your choice
celery and crackers for dipping

You can warm this up in the crock pot or on the stove. It's so good you can eat it as a meal. 
Original recipe here.
