This flavorful Buffalo cheese dip is made with only 4 ingredients. Cream cheese, mayonnaise, and Buffalo wing sauce are combined with some chopped celery for a crunchy, tasty dip. The dip is perfect for chicken wings or fried chicken strips. Or serve it with vegetable sticks or chips.
The basic dip is served cold, but there are many variations you might want to consider, including baked dips. Sour cream can be used instead of mayonnaise, and shredded cheese is another possible addition. Take a look at the variations (below) for some other ideas.
If you're not sure about the heat, use 3 to 4 tablespoons of the wing sauce and add more to the blender, tasting between pulses, to suit your taste. It's a delicious dip to serve your game day gathering or make it for a party or potluck.
