It’s almost time for the S(t)uperbowl. So I hear, anyway. I don’t even know who’s playing. Yawn.

I’d rather be eating bacon.

Still, I know the S(t)uperbowl is practically an American holiday, so I bacon-fied the best part about it: Buffalo Chicken Dip.

Just remember, Team Bacon always wins.

  1. “Like Frank’s”? Excuse me, no other hot sauce is like Frank’s! This sounds like a great dip, and I might just have to try it! Thanks!
