It doesn’t need to be Super Bowl Sunday in order to enjoy a creamy dip! Football season is here and this is enough of a special occasion to try out some soon to be favorite recipes for your next party! We have a lot of friend and family gatherings to watch the games and I’m always on the hunt for an easy dip that is full of delicious flavor to bring to a game day party. I found a variety of the best dip recipes and while a lot of them are the classic type of crowd pleaser, I made sure to keep an eye out for simple ingredients and healthy dips. Healthy eating can be a really great addition to the big game, as most of the time appetizers can be heavy! Let me know what your favorite game-day snacks are and let’s get into these delicious recipes!
We have to begin with the classics! Buffalo chicken dip is a game day staple! Not to mention the fact that it’s one that loved by all. Get your hands on some tortilla chips and create this delicious dip for your guests! This is a super simple recipe to follow and the creator actually used rotisserie chicken, which makes it even easier! If you’re not a blue cheese fan, you can swap it out for a cheese of your choice and that’s one of the best parts about these dips- they are all easily amendable. And let’s be clear, just because you have buffalo chicken dip, it doesn’t mean you have to skip on the buffalo wings! It’s one of our family’s favorite dips and I know you’ll all love this one!
