Not your average gameday snack

Football and food go hand in hand this time of year. While I am no expert in all of the X’s and O’s that go into every play on the field, I can certainly hold my own with the best of them in the snack department.

Each week, I’ll offer a different recipe to try during the games. Some will offer new takes on old favorites, while others will be new recipes developed while traveling through various parts of the country. This week’s recipe is an escape from the traditional chips and salsa.

I call it Big Rose’s Buffalo Chicken Dip.

Here’s the recipe:

Poach three whole chicken breasts for ten minutes or until tender. When ready, shred the chicken into either threads or chop into small pieces. Mix the chicken with two cups of cheddar cheese, one block of cream cheese, a small bottle of your favorite hot sauce and a bottle of Blue cheese salad dressing. Spread evenly into a baking dish and bake the mixture at 350 degrees for forty minutes. Let the dip cool for five minutes and then grab your favorite brand of tortilla chips, a cold beverage and ENJOY!

Don’t forget to listen to the Walkons Radio Show every Sunday from 11:30am-1pm to hear the best pre-game sports talk on the Internet.
