This post is sponsored by my friends at Family Dollar.This season, awesome game day food doesn’t have to take a lot of time or be crazy expensive. These Buffalo Chicken Fries are one of our favorite splurges when the game is on. They’re quick, crazy easy, and you can make a huge platter of them for less than $15 at Family Dollar.
We had a few friends stop by last weekend and they ended up staying to watch the football game. Wanting to be a good host, I rummaged through the kitchen, but couldn’t find much to serve up in the way of game day snacks.
No worries though! I jumped in the car and ran to the Family Dollar just down the street and picked up everything I needed to make one of our favorite football foods – Buffalo Chicken Fries.
We’ve been making this tangy, cheesy perfection since we first had them at a local burger joint a while back. This recipe includes crispy french fries topped with melty cheese, chopped buffalo chicken fingers, more cheese, and a drizzle of ranch dressing. Yeah, it’s a little over the top – but who wants to eat a salad when they’re watching football??? I mean, just look at that cheese!
