friday night eats: wing dip by samantha march (and mitch!)

Continuing our celebration of football watch party dips, this week I invited my publisher and fellow Packers fan Samantha March (and her husband, Mitch) to share a favorite recipe.

Buffalo Wing Dip by Samantha March (and Mitch!)

So... I am not a domestic goddess. I don’t know what it is, but that just is not me. I can’t decorate my house for the seasons, I don’t get excited to light fresh candles and whip out my dust rag, and I don’t want to be in the kitchen. Really for any reason. You know what I would rather be doing on a Sunday afternoon? Watching some NFL action. Monday night? Same thing. Thursday night? You betcha.

Luckily, I not only found a man who was not turned off by my undomestic goddess status, but in some respects, he prefers it. Sure, my husband would probably like to see me tidy the house more than once every two weeks or occasionally bust out the mop, but there is one aspect that he is more than happy I stay away from, and that is cooking.

Whew! I’m not going to lie, I’ve had about every cliché kitchen mishap you will read about in a chick lit novel. I’m twenty-eight but ready to call it quits on trying to find that domestic goddess switch. It’s honestly embarrassing, but crazy frustrating at the same time. Enter...Husband. He not loves cooking and creating in the kitchen, but he’s darn good at it. I would probably either starve or live off fast food if it weren’t for him!

So as we celebrate the release of one of my new favorites read, First & Goal, I asked him to share his favorite recipe with me so I could share it with the rest of you. I give you...Buffalo Chicken Dip!

1 Package (8 ounces) of cream cheese, softened
1 can (10 oz) of chunk white chicken, drained
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
1/2 cup blue cheese (he insists, blue cheese NOT ranch!)
2 cups (8 oz) of shredded cheese – he prefers Colby- Monterrey Jack

Throw everything in a crockpot and turn on high :) My kind of cooking!

He usually starts this about an hour to two hours before we want to eat and voila! So easy you would think I could do it but...I would find a way to mess it up, so it stays with him!

*Quick confession/disclaimer: When I recreated this dish to take this photo
I actually used a soy-based faux chicken. And it was amazing.

About the Book
When Harper Duquaine’s no-nonsense approach to work unintentionally ruffles the wrong feathers at her new job, she joins her co-workers’ fantasy football league to prove she can hang with the guys. Only problem: she doesn’t know a sleeper from a keeper (or any of the other lingo thrown her way). 

Embroiled in a world of lineups, stats, and trades, Harper’s quest to make nice topples when her competitive streak emerges. And her promise to herself that she’ll be a strong, independent woman and leave the drama and heartache behind is seriously tested when she catches the attention of her two biggest competitors: J.J., a local celebrity determined to win a fantasy championship, and Brook, the mild-mannered coach who seems too good to be true. Both threaten her resolve to remain single… and, more importantly, her chances at winning the prize pool.

With a slew of conflicting advice in her real and fantasy worlds, Harper must figure out how to play the game and come out a winner.

Now Available on Amazon , Barnes & Noble, and Kobo.
