Buffalo chicken wings are one of those comfort foods that I love to have, but they are so messy to eat. This dip has the perfect flavor of buffalo wings, but in the convenience of a dip. Let chips or celery sticks do the messy part while you take in the this spicy buffalo chicken hands free! If that’s not enough to convince you, this recipe is also straight from the Crockpot. Throw all the ingredients in the pot and in about 3 hours you have the next best thing to actual chicken wings… perfect for those lazy football Saturdays!!
