I honor of the Olympic closing ceremonies in Sochi, I decided to make the most American dish I know … buffalo chicken dip! It’s the epitome of everything American. It stares down the country’s most popular bar food and asks, “how do I make this better?” It doesn’t settle for just being great, it strives to reach excellence. And in this case, excellence is achieve with a block of cream cheese and pre-canned chicken.
Plus this dips is smooth yet packs a punch. I know, the American similarities are frightening.
If you want to bid farewell to the Olympics is style, why not grab a group of friend and chow down on some buffalo chicken dip.
