It’s now 2 weeks until my Superbowl prep officially begins. Yes, I begin prep 3 days before the big game! What can I say, it’s my biggest party of the year, attended by dozens of hungry foodies, I have to bring my A game!
This year, I had dozens of ideas for new Superbowl recipes, many of which I’ll be sharing over the next two weeks, but I had to start off with this dip recipe because it combines two of my favorite things, cheese dip (also known as queso in Oklahoma!) and buffalo sauce!
If you’ve ever visited my blog before, you know about my obsession with buffalo sauce. An obsession that lead me to write an entire cookbook featuring recipes with buffalo sauce, titled “Buffalo Style”.
In addition to the cookbook I’ve shared dozens of “Buffalo Style” recipes on the blog over the years, including some favorites, like Buffalo Chicken Phyllo Rolls, Homemade Buffalo Cheese Ball, Buffalo Pickle Chips and Buffalo Chicken Taco Ring.
Today a new favorite is added to that list!
This dip has all of the Superbowl components you could want, it’s cheesy, meaty and buffalo saucy!
The best part is, it’s slow cooked in the Wonderbag so you can whip it up in the morning, place it in the bag for 2-3 hours, then pop out a deliciously warm dip as soon as the game kicks off!
The Wonderbag uses heat retention technology to slow cook food that has been brought to a boil without the use of any additional electricity or gas. It’s simple, portable and perfect for taking delicious buffalo style dishes to a Superbowl party!
Now I know that you all want to get your hands on a Wonderbag to cook up this delicious dip, along with slow cooked meatballs, soups, chili and more, so I’ve partnered up with my friends at WonderbagWorld.com to give away one of these awesome slow cooker bags!

Now let’s get cooking!
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ cup onions (diced)
- 3 garlic cloves (minced)
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- ½ cup buffalo sauce
- 1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies
- 8 oz cream cheese (cubed)
- 2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
Add the olive oil to a large pot (or dutch oven) over medium heat. Add the diced onions, saute 5-6 minutes, add the garlic and saute an additional 1-2 minutes. Add the ground beef, sprinkle with chili powder, black pepper and kosher salt, then cook through.
Drain any grease from the ground beef, then add the buffalo sauce and tomatoes to the pot.
Add the cream cheese & cheddar cheese.
Stir until the cheese is melted and begins to bubble.
Cover the pot and remove from the heat. Add to the Wonderbag, cover and pull closed. Slow cook in the Wonderbag for 2-3 hours.
Remove from the bag and serve with chips for dipping.
You know those little emojis that look like a blue and yellow version of Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone?
That’s pretty much what I used to describe this dip to a friend. OMG it’s amazing!
What’s not to love, meat, cheese, buffalo sauce, all dipped up on a deliciously crispy chip, yes please!
