Sunday football was always a tradition growing up. From a young age I was well versed in the rules of the game and players names. Of course with the game there was always lots of snacks. Sunday lunch? Snacks! I had always thought this tradition was completely normal. But when MarocBaba first came to the US he was so confused! Not only did he not understand the game but he was completely surprised that I did. (The things he still had to learn about me!). One aspect he could get behind was the snacks.
When I was getting ready for this weeks’ game I knew it was time to break out the warm foods. We love buffalo chicken wings, well frankly anything with hot wing sauce. I make a really great buffalo pizza using this base recipe and decided to turn it into a dip. What I love about this super simple dip is you can pair it with a lot of different things. I served it with Saffron Road’s Chicken Tenders and Turkish Fig and Goat Cheese hors d’oeuvres as well as some chopped up fresh vegetables. I really love the combination of the fig and goat cheese hors d’oeuvres with the spiciness of the dip.
- 1/2 c hot wing sauce
- 1/2 c ranch dressing (try my homemade version)
- a handful of mozzarella or blue cheese
In a small saucepan mix together all of the ingredients and turn the heat to medium. Watch carefully and stir constantly until the cheese melts. That’s it! Serve warm with your favorite dippers.
