Beer Cheese & Buffalo Chicken {Dips}


Next Sunday is Superbowl Sunday…….and true American tradition makes it a day for pig-out parties and backyard pick-up games. Everyone watches the Super Bowl for one reason or another. Some watch for the halftime show, some for the commercials, and I’ve heard rumors that some actually watch for the football game. …..ME? I’m in it for the FOOD!

If you are hosting your own party, or need to bring snacks to somebody else’s, I have a few great dips I thought I’d share.

First up……
