Homemade Buffalo Wings & Ranch Dip

buffalowingsranchdressing

We are getting closer and closer to the Super Bowl. Are you planning on celebrating the big game? If so, I recently posted some quick and easy game time snack solutions that included chips, dips, taters, fruit, and buffalo wings of course. Feel free to check out that post for a little inspiration. In that post, I had actually wanted to share my buffalo wing recipe, but when I sent Greg to Walmart for wing portions, he grabbed the frozen buffalo wings. So… I just rolled with it.

Buffalo wings are a snack that people just can’t get enough of. They are just super tasty and irresistible. Oh my goodness, I sound so greedy right now, but hey they are finger lickin’ good.  We used to buy them frozen all of the time until I discovered how simple they are to make. With the Super Bowl coming up, a game day celebration wouldn’t be complete without them. If entertaining for a group, large or small, you can save a few bucks with this quick buffalo wing recipe. As a bonus, I’m sharing a yummy ranch dip recipe as well. You’re welcome :-).

Often times, whole wings are cheaper than wing portions, so feel free to use those and separate them yourself. If you’d like to save some time, you can grab a big bag of Great Value wing portions in Walmart’s freezer aisle. Let me know if you try these recipes and if you have any ideas  for a game day celebration, do share!
