It’s now 2 weeks until my Super Bowl 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!

Buffalo Cheeseburger Dip

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.

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.

Slow Cooked Buffalo Cheeseburger Dip

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 Super Bowl party!
