Spicy Homemade Buffalo Wings with Dip and Beer

Buffalo Wings have been a pub favorite since time immemorial.

The moment it dawned on Teressa Bellissimo – of a family restaurant in Buffalo, New York called The Anchor Bar – to coat fried chicken wings in a special sauce and serve with a blue cheese dip and freshly chopped celery and carrot sticks, finger food fanatics never looked back.

The crispiness of this choice chicken cut worked well with the caramelized sauce, and that’s exactly what made it a worldwide phenomenon that’s still on up until today!
