I always spend at least 2 weeks planning and curating the perfect spread for our family to munch on. With the new year upon us, I have been sticking to my New Year’s resolution of a healthier lifestyle. With celebrations of the holidays behind us, I’ve had no real reason to indulge until the upcoming big game.
To stick with my resolution, I started to look for ideas outside of the box. I love having wings while watching football, and chips with dip are always a given. So I thought, what if I could combine my love for chicken wings and dip but still stick to the healthier side? I came across this TRISCUIT Easy Buffalo Chicken Spread which hit all the marks I was looking for. I get the crunch of the chips in the form of Triscuit Crackers, and my cravings for wings in the form of Buffalo sauce and shredded chicken. And this recipe leaves room to trade out ingredients for more healthy options (check the tips section for all those delicious details).
