Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos

Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos

You must know by now that I love all things spicy, and especially all things buffalo!  The other day I made these delicious Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos.  They were awesome, of course, so much so that I’ve already made a second version of the buffalo nachos (to be posted later….stay tuned!)

Game Time with Tyson Deli Wings

When it comes time for game day, we always have a lot of “man food” on hand.  I love putting out a spread of appetizers on the counter just before the start of the first game of the day, and then going back later at dinner time.  It generally makes for an easy day as far as cooking, and it allows me to watch the games with my hubby without having to spend all day in the kitchen.  Hot Wings are definitely on my top 5 list of game day buffet items!  But if you want to keep it easy, you usually have to order out, which can get expensive, or you have to buy a frozen product, which just doesn’t compare with something fresh.

OR… You can stop by the Walmart Deli!  The Walmart Deli serves up a variety of bone-in and boneless wings for your football party! [Read more…]

Buffalo Chicken & Rice

Buffalo Chicken & Rice
As you know, around here we love all things buffalo!  This week I’m sharing one of my recent inventions: Buffalo Chicken & Rice!  This recipe is based on the Buffalo Potato Casserole I shared a while back.  Both are deliciously good, comfort food  meals with a kick! 

Recipe for Buffalo Chicken & Rice:

12-15 Skinless Boneless Chicken Strips, not cooked
1/4 – 1/2 cup buffalo sauce (I use Frank’s)
1 1/2 cups rice, cooked (I use the white, long grain)
1 cup of ranch dressing
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 can cream of celery soup
Directions: Cook rice on stove top according to package directions.  Heat oven to 375. Spray 13×9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl stir  dressing, soup, 1/2 cup cheese, cooked rice, and 1/4 cup of buffalo sauce. Pour mixture into baking dish.
In same bowl, place chicken strips and 1/4 cup of buffalo sauce (use more if needed).  Coat each strip with sauce.  Then spoon chicken and sauce over the rice mixture.
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Take out and remove foil. Top with 1 cup of cheese. Bake uncovered for another 30 minutes or until chicken is done.

*Optional – Serve additional ranch on the side or atop rice.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

With football season in full swing, this week I’ve decided to share one of our favorite dips for football snacking.  I first made this dip for the 2008 Super Bowl, and at that time I served it cold.  It wasn’t until the last couple of times I made it, that I decided to heat it in the microwave.  And I have to say that we enjoy it either way.  And you can also bake it in the oven if your prefer. So it’s a very versatile and tasty treat, and it’s also fast and convenient! Enjoy!

Recipe for Buffalo Chicken Dip:
2 (8 oz) blocks of cream cheese
1 (10 oz) canned chicken breast
1/2 bottle Frank’s Hot Sauce (buffalo)
1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Directions: In a Pyrex bowl or 8×8 casserole dish, combine cream cheese (softened) with hot sauce until well blended.  Take canned chicken and drain off the juice. Then use a fork to break up the chunks into shreds. (If you prefer, you may also use a cup of freshly cooked chicken, shredded.)  Fold chicken and 1/2 cup to 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese into cream cheese mixture. After the dip is well blended, top with 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese.
At this point you can serve the dip cold if desired.  Or for hot dip, place in microwave for 3-5 minutes (or until heated throughout) OR bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, or veggie sticks.  (Refrigerate left overs and reheat in microwave if needed.)
