Here’s another one of those WOW your hubby dishes! I am totally going to whip these up again when football season comes around. I served ours using Tastefully Simple’s bold & buffalo blue cheese dip mix, which unfortunately they don’t make anymore. I should have stocked up because it was one of my favorite products. *note I found the original recipe in Real Food magazine, spring 2012.
