First up, slow-cooker buffalo chicken dip.
Now, this is something to cheer about: Everyone’s favorite game-time dip getting a slow-cooker makeover! All you need to do is drop the first 10 ingredients in the slow cooker and then let it do all the work while you handle the rest of your last-minute watch-party prep. The recipe calls for a cup of hot sauce. We opted for Frank’s Red Hot but feel free to sub in your favorite. A combination of cream cheese, shredded cheese, crumbled blue cheese, and sour cream makes this one creamy appetizer. The dip will cook for an hour and a half to two hours, but only takes 10 minutes of hands-on time. Just before serving, stir in 1/4 cup of chopped scallions for an extra punch of flavor. Serve with celery sticks, carrots sticks, and your favorite tortilla chips. Buy pre-chopped celery and baby carrots to cut down on prep time. With ten half-cup servings, this recipe was made for a crowd. Serve it straight out of the slow-cooker for a no-fuss presentation.

Combine chicken, cream cheese, mozzarella, Colby-Jack, sour cream, hot sauce, blue cheese, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a 4-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW until cheeses melt, 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring after 1 hour. Stir in scallions. Serve with celery sticks, carrot sticks, and tortilla chips.
