Tailgate Tuesday: Buffalo Chicken Dip

(note: Tailgate Tuesday posts are special features written for the SideLion Report from us gals of The Thrifty Table. Check in every Tuesday for a new recipe perfect for that week's tailgate party!)

This post is from our dear friend Patti, who is also Jenn's sister in law. Patti and I go way back with our cooking adventures and many of my favorite recipes come from Patti. With a football lover husband, Patti has mastered the tailgate foods and here is one of her favorites. I will now turn it over to Patti:

Buffalo Bills Buffalo Dip

The first time I had this spicy, creamy, perfect-for-tailgating dip was when my husband, SideLion Lead Blogger Zac Snyder, and I were camping with our friends. Though it was summer, the weather was rainy and bleak, much like fall weather here in Michigan, and this Buffalo Dip warmed us through and through. The combination of hot sauce and cream cheese make a knock-out combination for any football game. This delectable dip may make you wonder why you ever ate buffalo wings off the bone!
