Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip

We were introduced to Buffalo Chicken Dip at a friend’s party a couple years ago. On the eve of one of the mogul skiing competitions at our local hill, a group gathered to celebrate the upcoming event. There, on the kitchen table, sitting oh-so-innocently was a dip that would change my world–Buffalo Chicken Dip. From …
