Buffalo chicken dip is one of my favorite easy appetizers for a day of sports watching, but it can be kind of a messy serving situation. These wonton cups are great because they are self-contained and you can scale the recipe easily for however many people you need to serve.

    This is one of easy appetizers to cook before a game. I also try with other meats and found crab is good, too.
