BBQ Chicken Dip For Tailgating


Take that tailgate party to another level with a quick BBQ chicken dip!!  This is easy to make and jammed packed with BBQ flavor. Your team might lose the game but the dip will always be a big WIN!! I made this dip with grilled chicken but you can substitute in pulled pork, onions, peppers or whatever else you have on hand.

When I host or attend a backyard BBQ tailgate I am always trying to keep my family and friends happy.  Putting great food in front of them usually does the trick.  What makes this dip so great besides the flavor is its flexibility.  It can be made the day of the big game or built the night before and then the only thing you will need is a grill to finish it!!
