I'm sorry for the delay in posts. I would like to blame my cut finger for the inability to type up some of my latest kitchen happenings, but I didn't cut myself that bad...
Anyway, looking back at the past two weekends (has it been that long?!), I've had some really great food and I'm glad to share it with you! For the Superbowl, I made Buffalo Chicken Dip loosely based on this recipe from Skinnytaste.com.
Please note that cooking with hot sauce with a cut finger could lead to all sorts of disasters and swearing in the kitchen. Thanks to one of my husband's favorite shows, Swamp People, I have picked up on one of the character's sayings: "Dog it" instead of the other word that starts with a d.
Since I wasn't totally invested in either team and our group of friends are all really good cooks, we had a crazy smorgasbord of food. We had two types of guacamole, rice and seaweed snacks, jalapeno hush puppies (SO GOOD my cousin gave me the magazine that it was from), puppy chow/muddy buddies, shrimp with sesame, and all sorts of things. No one goes hungry at these parties. We enjoyed the food, the commercials and Beyonce. Who doesn't love a good Beyonce performance?
Buffalo Chicken Dip
2 cups chopped cooked chicken (about two boneless, skinless chicken breasts)
1 tbsp-ish olive oil
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese (I used the low fat kind)
1 14 oz (possibly 16 oz, I forget...) tub of Greek Yogurt
1 cup-ish of hot sauce (I used Franks)
1 cluster of celery trimmed and chopped up into dip-able sticks
Start getting a frying pan hot and heat the oil. Spread the oil around so your chicken doesn't stick to the pan. Cook the the chicken all the way through. No pink insides! I chopped my chicken up before I cooked it so that it would cook faster, but you can chop it up afterward too. Just be sure to let it cool down so you can handle it.
|Lots of chicken!|
|Yes, it will turn that bright orange color!|
Question: Which was your favorite commercial? Mine was a tie between the Budweiser Clydesdales, the Jeep/USO, and Ram Trucks "Farmer". All three of them made me choke up!
