I love buffalo anything… chicken, shrimp, cauliflower, everything. There’s just something about the tangy, vinegary, sauce that just sets my mouth to watering. So, when the folks at Frank’s RedHot asked me to share my favorite buffalo recipe with them, I jumped at the chance. The problem is, my favorite Buffalo Chicken Dip is already on the blog and I needed to come up with something new and different. Feeling the need to stay true to my favorite recipe, I adapted my favorite dip into these AMAZING Buffalo Chicken Dip Cups. Crispy wonton wrappers are filled with creamy and delicious buffalo chicken dip, sprinkled with tangy crumbled blue cheese, and topped with finely chopped celery and green onion. Amazing. Seriously amazing. They’re so easy and perfect for your tailgate or any event for that matter.
And check this out, the folks at Frank’s and Winn-Dixie are giving away the Ultimate Tailgating Truck. Seriously, you can win an awesome truck tricked out with tons of gear for your tailgate and all you have to do is to submit a photo of your tailgating setup and make sure it includes some of that amazing Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. You can enter your picture by visiting their website or by tweeting your picture and using the hashtags #WinnDixie #FranksRedHot and #Contest, but you have to use all 3.
The contest ends November 10th, so get your entry in today. See the official rules for complete details. Now, let’s make some food…
Start by lining mini muffin tin cups with wonton wrappers. Have a gentle hand with this as some brands tear easily. Is just kind of folder the edges over to make the cup and pressed the seams together. You’ll get a rhythm with this. And don’t stress if you tear a few to start, you won’t use the whole package anyway.
Now, put that cream cheese (half of an 8-ounce package) into a bowl and microwave it until melted, then stir in your Frank’s RedHot Wins Buffalo Sauce. Notice this isn’t straight Frank’s RedHot, but Frank’s Red Hot WINGS sauce. 🙂
Mix that all around…
Now add in your chicken and mix, mix, mix.
Scoop about 1 heaping tablespoon of the dip mixture into each of the wonton cups.
Sprinkle with blue cheese and bake for about 10 minutes or just until the wonton edges start to brown.
While those are baking, finely chop your celery and green onion. Place it in a small bowl and toss with the vinegar. Sprinkle the cups with this topping when you’re ready to serve. You can even add a drizzle of ranch or blue cheese dressing if you so desire. 🙂
