A Super Bowl tailgating recipe you need to make


Super Bowl LVI, to be held on Feb. 13, is going to be a good one. As of press time, four possible teams will become the eventual two to play: the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals and the Kansas City Chiefs.

There are no New York teams in the mix this year, but that doesn’t usually stop us Long Islanders from watching and, perhaps, rooting against the team that did our team wrong earlier in the season. This time, the sporting event is all the way over on the left coast (the West Coast, that is) and will be held at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. For the popular halftime show, performers include Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar.

Some of us will be enjoying the game in the company of friends and family; others may be cautious over rising COVID-19 infections and decide to watch the game at home. Either way, good food is in order. Whether you cook that good food and bring it to your brother-in-law’s house or enjoy it just among your small family, is to be decided.

The recipe below is for Buffalo chicken dip, a favorite at Super Bowl Sunday events across the nation, as it has been for nearly all of the 56 years of the Super Bowl’s existence. In fact, when I think of Super Bowl snacks, I think of Buffalo chicken dip or Buffalo chicken wings with a creamy side of blue cheese dip and a few stalks of crisp celery.
