Talk about the classics.
This dip can’t get more classic in my life. This has been around since I-don’t-know-when and it’s an absolute go-to dip for almost any occasion. It shows up at pretty much every tailgate, every barbeque and every Super Bowl party I’ve ever been to.
So it’s no surprise that with the summer BBQ season coming up, I’m going to be making this dip for all of my friends, at least a few times anyway.
Obviously, being from upstate New York, I’ve got a fair share of chicken wing sauces to choose from. Each of these sauces inevitably has their own version for chicken wing dip. And, I’ve drawn inspiration from their recipes to make my own dip.
Most of those recipes involve baking the dip but I’m partial to the slow cooker variety as it’s easier to put together and to keep warm during a party that lasts a while. If you like chicken wings, you will love this creamy and spicy twist on a classic appetizer.
Trust me, there is never any left over!
