I hate IPA beer. I cannot stand the funky hoppy taste of an IPA and it makes me gag.

Husband loves it. It’s the only beer he drinks. He seeks out new IPA’s on a regular basis to try. Craziness.

One thing both of us do love is buffalo chicken dip. The spiciness of the buffalo flavor mixed with the sharp creaminess of the cheese makes both our mouths very happy. Any Chiefs football game is incomplete without buffalo chicken dip.

So what happens when you add IPA beer to buffalo chicken dip? Because of my obvious love for IPA beer, I totally poured some into my favorite dip. NOT!

I have The Beeroness to thank for this absolutely perfect recipe. Pinterest led me to the recipe of this intriguing combination of buffalo chicken dip and IPA beer and, since I always have IPA beer in my refrigerator, I gave it a shot.

If you are an IPA hater like me, it doesn’t matter with this dip recipe. In this recipe, the funky hoppy IPA beer elevates all the elements of the buffalo chicken dip into a masterpiece everyone loves.
