This Buffalo dip is must-have dish at our annual Fourth of July backyard barbecue! It celebrates America's love for Buffalo chicken dipped in heaps of creamy, tangy blue cheese dressing. And the bacon? That's just a bonus! My kids aren't big fans of blue cheese, but its strong flavor can be mellowed out by adding more mild cheddar in its place. —Katie O'Keeffe, Derry, New Hampshire

8 thick-sliced peppered bacon strips, cooked and chopped
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook chicken over medium heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Transfer chicken to a large bowl; stir in sour cream, 1 cup cheddar cheese, 1 cup blue cheese, wing sauce, butter and pepper.
Transfer chicken mixture to a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Top with remaining cheeses and crushed chips. Bake until cheese is melted, 10-12 minutes. Top with green onions and bacon. Serve with celery sticks and chips.
