Homemade Buffalo Wings & Ranch Dip


We are getting closer and closer to the Super Bowl. Are you planning on celebrating the big game? If so, I recently posted some quick and easy game time snack solutions that included chips, dips, taters, fruit, and buffalo wings of course. Feel free to check out that post for a little inspiration. In that post, I had actually wanted to share my buffalo wing recipe, but when I sent Greg to Walmart for wing portions, he grabbed the frozen buffalo wings. So… I just rolled with it.

Buffalo wings are a snack that people just can’t get enough of. They are just super tasty and irresistible. Oh my goodness, I sound so greedy right now, but hey they are finger lickin’ good.  We used to buy them frozen all of the time until I discovered how simple they are to make. With the Super Bowl coming up, a game day celebration wouldn’t be complete without them. If entertaining for a group, large or small, you can save a few bucks with this quick buffalo wing recipe. As a bonus, I’m sharing a yummy ranch dip recipe as well. You’re welcome :-).

  • 1¼ cups buttermilk
  • ¾ cup real mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup parsley, chopped thinly
  • ⅓ cup dill, thinly chopped
  • ¾ teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder

For the Buffalo Wings: I've used Sweet Baby Ray's Buffalo, Frank's, and Louisiana before. All yield yummy results.

For the Ranch Dip: For the best flavor, use fresh herbs, but feel free to play around with fresh and dried variations.

Often times, whole wings are cheaper than wing portions, so feel free to use those and separate them yourself. If you’d like to save some time, you can grab a big bag of Great Value wing portions in Walmart’s freezer aisle. Let me know if you try these recipes and if you have any ideas  for a game day celebration, do share!
