I love Buffalo Wings. This is strange to me, because when they first became the rage, I didn’t want a thing to do with them. Why take the time and energy to eat a wing? Ain’t no thing but a chicken wing, right? There’s not much meat on there, and they sure aren’t going to constitute a meal.

Well, I finally broke the wing barrier and tried one. I tried a couple at different places. I started to become addicted, but only to certain wings. I have my favorites. I like the ones from Uncle Ernie’s in Chatsworth, CA. I don’t care for the ones at Papa John’s. I Like Pizza Hut’s okay.

But I found a recipe online that I had to try and now it’s going to be a staple on my party food list. Frank’s Red Hots has a recipe for Buffalo Wing Dip! That’s right – no actual wing bones to deal with, either. 🙂

Of course, you can use any brand of wing sauce you like, and at whatever heat level you like. I used the Kroger brand wing sauce in medium heat. It is just easier for me to copy and paste the ingredient list and directions in the original from the web, than to type them by hand.

You may notice that you can do a blue cheese or a ranch version of this dip. I haven’t tried the blue cheese yet, but please comment if you try it and like it!
