It's a rule at our house.....you simply cannot have chicken tenders or buffalo wings without this blue cheese dip! Wee bear loves this blue cheese dip with just about anything! I love it with cut up vegetables like carrots, cucumber, red or yellow bell pepper, mushrooms or celery.
Ruth, a close friend gave me this recipe after Bill nearly flipped when she served a few years ago. Of course she has served it multiple times since. Ruth recommends making it 6 hours ahead or preferably the day before.....it will meld the flavors to perfection!
Making the blue cheese dip is very simple, and is a 8-minute task that only involves a little bit of chopping and mixing together a few ingredients. With Football play offs in full swing, this is a easy one to make and serve for play offs or Superbowl!
