Saddle up cowboy, you’re in for a wild recipe! If you’ve following me for a while, you will know that I loveee a good theme party and my bff Shreeti is a woman after my own heart. She’s almost as nuts as I am and will go to any lengths to throw a great soiree. So when she mentioned she was throwing her husband a ‘Cowboy’ themed party, I don’t believe there was one person more excited than me. I asked if I could bring something themed to the party and she was thrilled. After thinking long and hard about what I could make, I decided on making a Buffalo Chicken Dip.

Now there are many many recipes out there, but this one is on Cowboy crack, I promise you. For beginners, the Chicken is marinated in Buffalo & hot sauce and studded with Garlic and Jalapeno and char grilled before it gets folded into the other ingredients like cream cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing, spring onions, jalapeno, buffalo and hot sauce and cheese!

As a centerpiece, I decided to use a small Jalapeno and stick rice grains in it to look like a cactus, it turned out so well I was thrilled. Check it out in the video link!
