Don’t hate me.
It’s probably the sexiest appetizer I’ve ever made in the history of Dixie Chik Cooks. And y’all know I love to make appetizers so I obviously bonded with this one in a special way.
Sometimes, eating chili by itself just isn’t enough. I mean, most of the time it is. BUT – every now and then you gotta get all crazy as shit with it. At least I do.
My good friends at Cabot happen to have quite the line up of cheeses. I’ve made many things with their cheeses; go here, here, here and here just to check out a few. <—Trust me. I’ve used many in their collection, but one that I’ve had a hard time using in an original recipe is their Hot Buffalo Wing Cheddar. Not sure why; you would think that of all things would come naturally for me. I mean, after all I love to set my mouth on fire.
So, after making a big ass batch of chili (it unfortunately got cold here, damnit) it hit me to make – yes – another dip.
The hot wing buffalo cheddar married seamlessly with the chili and made a dip that I couldn’t get enough of. You can customize it – add more cream cheese, tomatoes, etc., if you want to keep the heat at a minimum, but why do that?
