Buffalo Chicken Dip


I made this appetizer for Super Bowl last week for the first time.  My husband is a huge fan of Buffalo Wings and Frank's Red Hot Sauce, so I thought this would be the perfect appetizer with some celery!  This dip was super easy to prep.  You can make in advance and let sit until you are ready to bake.  It was definitely the popular favorite that night out of all the appetizers made.  Of course, Bob was excited to even have leftovers the next day.   This is definitely the perfect appetizer for a
