Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken Dip

How is it only Thursday?! Don’t get me wrong; my week has been going really well, but I am DRAINED. And really hungry. And want nothing more than to curl up in bed with all six seasons of LOST, the biggest coffee in the world, and a box of cupcakes. (Doesn’t that sound amazing?!) I’m going to blame the weather. It’s been really gray here, aka nap weather, so even though my week has been great, I’m ready for a relaxing weekend. So. Close.

I think, by now, you’ve become very aware of my love of all things buffalo chicken. The chili, the cupcakes, the dip. My favorite dip of all time. Or, at least it was, until I made this Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken Dip for the first time. This is by far the most delicious hot dip I’ve ever had. Don’t believe me? Try it out for yourself!

What I’m Listening to: “Ghost” by Ella Henderson

Ingredients

-2 large chicken breasts

-12 oz cream cheese (I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese)

-1 cup of ranch dressing

-3/4 cup of barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Brown Sugar and Hickory)

-1 cup of cheddar cheese

-1/3 cup of mozzarella cheese

-1 tbsp garlic powder

-4 green onions, chopped

-Bread or chips for dipping

Place the chicken breasts in a slow cooker. Cover with water and cook on high for 2 hours. Drain the water, then shred the chicken with either an electric mixer or two forks. Add the remaining ingredients. Cook for 30-60 minutes, until the dip has melted together and is heated through. Turn the slow cooker to warm. Serve with warm bread or chips.

Fashion + Food: Super Bowl Edition

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you had a great week! I am so excited to share today’s post with you. Today is the first of *hopefully* many collaboration posts with my sister, Kaylee. Kaylee is the creator of Pleats and Pearls, a Midwest fashion blog. She and I have been talking about collaborating for awhile now, so we thought we’d start big, with football’s biggest day of the year!

Now, I think I dress pretty well, but Kaylee has me beat in every single way. Mostly because she doesn’t wear yoga pants to work every day like I do, but also, she’s really got an eye for fashion. Here’s a sneak peek of what she’s whipped up for the Super Bowl…

I’ve been told many times that I’m the “Monica” of my friend group. Not only do I love to cook, but I also love to be the hostess. (But I don’t get as crazy as Monica does…I promise!) I think it’s fun (or nerdy?) to have a food “theme” for parties, so for the Super Bowl, I chose dips. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good dip. Today, I’m sharing three dips that are sure to please all your party guests. Hot, cold, or dessert, I’ve got you covered! The first dip requires a bit of prep, but the other two can be thrown together in 5 minutes a piece. So sit back and relax…your Super Bowl party is sure to be a hit with these recipes.
