STORY / Mike Smith


With the big game just around the corner I wanted to show you one of my favorite sides to bring to the party. A few years back I went to a “Big Game” party and tried some buffalo chicken dip for the first time. I couldn’t put it down! When I asked how to make it I got the usual, “Oh, it’s really easy, I’ll send you the recipe.” Usually I would write that off as, It has more then 3 steps, don’t even try it. But I’m here to tell you that it really is easy to make so let me show you how!

2 (10 ounces) cans chunk Chicken, DRAINED (or a Rotisserie Chicken!)

¾ cup Hot Sauce

1 cup ranch dressing

1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese

1 stalk green onions


To serve: 1 bunch celery, cleaned and cut into 4’ pieces + 1 box crackers + chips (optional)


TOOLS

Slow cooker


First, let’s make some beer brats.


HEAT

Chicken and hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat until the sauce is ingrained in the chicken.
