So, I’m not really the biggest fan of football. Probably because I didn’t grow up watching it and because I don’t know what the heck is going on, so it is kind of difficult for me to get into it. However, I do love tailgating
and tailgating snacks, so I have decided to share these two with you.
Buffalo Chicken Dip 7-Layer Dip
First, we will start with the buffalo chicken dip. Its a simple recipe that I got from http://www.daydreamkitchen.com/2012/12/buffalo-chicken-dip/
First, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Next, mix your chicken, cream cheese and wing sauce in a bowl. Toss until everything is well coated.
Put mixture into a oven safe dish coated with cooking spray and top with ranch and cheese. Now, it is ready for the oven. Bake for 15 or 20 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Now, for the 7-layer dip. I love this stuff and could probably survive off of it. I also like it because really you can throw what ever you like in it. It isn’t a strict science. (Plus it is much tastier than its disgusting cousin, 7-layer salad, ew)
This is how my layers went, bottom to top:
1. refried beans (1 can)
2. guacamole ( 1 cup, you can make your own like this http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Guacamole/Detail.aspx but I cheated and used store bought)
3.salsa (3/4 cup, I also used store bought, but if your feeling extra frisky here is a recipe http://www.simplyscratch.com/2011/01/homemade-salsa.html)
4.sour cream (apx 8 oz)
5. cheese (1 cup)
6.jalapenos ( This and cilantro can be used to your liking)
So honestly it is 5-layer dip with toppings. Nonetheless, delicious!
Also, a quick tip for you. I put the sour cream on top because I thought it would look the prettiest, but it got all mixed in with the salsa. So next time I may move the salsa between the beans and guacamole.
These recipes are both done really quickly and mostly only require assembly. Both can be eaten with tortilla chips or you can mix it up with the buffalo dip and use toasted French bread or bagel chips. I hope you are able to enjoy them with your football this weekend! Go Jags!
