Buffalo Chicken Dip Blossom

IMG_2487My favorite recipes are the versatile ones. I love food that you can make in big batches to impress guests at a party or as small servings for just you to enjoy during a night in. My mom’s buffalo chicken dip is a great example of this, and I always beg her to make me some when I’m home for Christmas or the summer.

Mom’s buffalo dip is delicious, but takes a long time to cook in a big casserole dish, which doesn’t help when I’m craving it at that exact moment. Luckily, it’s made of pretty simple ingredients, and some tweaking and tossing it into a pan can make it a quick and easy snack for anytime of day. I made enough for two so I could stretch it to two meals, but you can easily double or triple the recipe to serve as many people as you like!
