Almost every Sunday in the fall I am making a batch of this simple, and easy chicken wing dip. It’s a family favorite and has pretty much become tradition now. Specifically this past year, because our hometown football team is having an amazing season. So, naturally my semi-superstitious and football loving oldest daughter, feels my making this dip has something to do with it!
