Happy Thursday! I hope your day is gearing up to be a good one. Time is ticking by slowly over here…so looking forward to my trip to run the marathon in Galveston this weekend, even if a little rain is expected. I have been keeping my mind distracted and getting much needed rest this week. The past couple of days it was SO nice just to be able to sleep in – something I do not always get a chance to do since I typically get up so early for my morning runs. Last night I taught dance class at 24 Hour Fitness. Fun times as usual. Lots of calories burned and buckets of sweat took place. It was a packed house too which I always like to see.
So since Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching, in honor of that special day of treats and eats I figured I should share a recipe with you all that I found from my friend Stephanie over at Running in the Kitchen for Buffalo Chicken Dip. I have tweaked it a bit but it was still delicious and my mom and I finished the pan I made in 2 days! Yeah, we like to eat around here.
My recipe serves about 4-6 people but you can increase the ingredients depending on how many people you are serving.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
1 container of light cream cheese, softened
1 can of canned chicken breast, drained
A few sprinkles of crumbled blue cheese
1 wedge of light swiss laughing cow cheese
1 cup of chopped green onions
1/4 cup of buffalo sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot Wing Sauce)
Carrots, celery sticks, and tortilla chips to dip in the yummy goodness
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined.
Place in an oven-safe dish and bake until browned and bubbly, about 25-30 minutes.
Serve hot with tortilla chips and veggies.
Did you know that the Super Bowl is one of the biggest calorie-fests of the year for many Americans? The average football fan eats about a day’s worth of calories during the game, and the U.S. Calorie Control Council estimates that Americans pack away 11 million pounds of chips on Super Bowl Sunday.
Here are some great alternatives to enjoy for the big day.
Are you having a Super Bowl party? What foods do you plan on serving/enjoying?
What team are you rooting for in the Super Bowl? Giants? Patriots??
