Betty White, the Super Bowl, and Frank’s Redhot Buffalo Chicken Dip


(Click here to go to this blog’s home page.)

On Sunday I watched about half of the Super Bowl commercials. I know this is a delayed comment, but my favorite commercial was the Snickers commercial with Betty White.

One of our pre-game appetizers was carrots, celery, and tortilla chips served with Frank’s Redhot Buffalo Chicken Dip. Mmmm, mmmm, good.  I’m not much of a one for really spicy food.  This dip had just the right amount of kick to keep it interesting, but not so much that it couldn’t be tamed with a swig of ice water of beer.

Instead of Frank’s Redhot sauce, “our” dip was made with Louisiana’s sauce, and without the crumbled blue cheese. I think the crumbled blue cheese would make it even better. But, even without the blue cheese, the dip was addicting. (Just one more bite. Ok, now, really, just one more “one-more” bite….)

My plan is to, by Friday evening, publish a fluff (but I think fun) post. After that, it might not be until the end of next week before I post again. When I do, I plan to post comments from two people who witnessed the Pocahontas, Iowa, grain elevator being constructed in the late 1940s. That grain elevator was painted twice by Mother (Marion Gunderson) in 1949. (Information about prints of each of her Pocahontas grain elevator watercolors is available on this blog at “View and Order Prints.”)

    Mmmmm, you’re making me hungry! We four Moores love a good dip. will make a copy of the recipe and your Shimon-twists. 🙂 What is “Louisiana’s sauce”? Oh . . . is it a play on your name? If so, I’m slow on the uptake! Please advise!

    Peggy: Actually, I just looked it up online and it is Louisiana (no apostrophe…I had originally used the apostrophe incorrectly) and the Louisiana brand sauce is described and shown at I didn’t actually make the sauce. Katie did, but I asked her which section of the store it was in and she said the BBQ sauce section. If you make it, I’ll be anxious to know what you think.
