I made this for the 2014 Super Bowl and it was pretty awesome. I made a couple of changes: 1) I used ranch dressing instead of blue cheese (we were feeding kiddos as well and you know they can be). 2) I did use some blue cheese crumbles that I got from the salad bar 3)I also used some green onion throughout the dip and on top 4) I took the advice of a previous reviewer and did not put cheese on the top 4) Lastly, I adjusted the amount of dressing and buffalo sauce by tasting and my preferred texture/creaminess. All-in-all I thought it was pretty darn awesome. It's an easy recipe to adjust to your personal liking.

Chef John: I'm sure bleu cheese is better--but I always use ranch for dipping wings, and use feta cheese crumbles instead because I'm allergic to bleu cheese--not kidding, my tongue swells up--it's not pretty. Maybe it's the particular kind of mold that makes bleu cheese blue.

"I serve it up..with celery case there are some vegetarians or vegans, I don't believe they're allowed to eat crackers..." Yeah, pretty sure they're not supposed to eat the CHICKEN in it, either!!! lol I guess that's Chef John's sense of humor??
