Super Beautiful with a Super Sunday Dip!

By Libbie Summers, Food Editor

That’s her…the stunning one with a stylish ease about her, a smile that goes on for days and a wicked sense of humor. This beautiful one is Courtney Fix. She has been Paula’s make up artist for nearly 4 years, and she is a dream. One of those girls who, IF I were 10 years younger, I might have hated in high school. Now, with the wisdom and confidence that “maturity” brings, I simply adore her. Aside from Jamie and Bobby, who else will throw a football with me during a lunch break? No one except Courtney. The thing is, neither one of the boys can also shape my eyebrows and talk mid-century lighting during the same lunch break. The total package? Yes, Courtney is it!

Courtney grew up in an Italian home in Syracuse, New York (thus the occasional dropped t’s). When not on the road with Paula, she lives just outside of New York City with her double “t” (tall and talented) husband, Bizz and their dog, Rasta. In Paula’s world there are often a myriad of different personalities in any given room at one time. I often marvel at how well Courtney can access them all so quickly. It must have something to do with her study of Anthropology at Florida Atlantic University. I wonder if that same anthropology degree has any relevance to the dead-on comedic impressions she can also do, my favorite being Bon Qui Qui working at King Burger. If you’re not familiar with the character, Google it. I don’t have to, because I can just ask Courtney to be her for me.

Why a story on a make up artist during big game week? If I didn’t give you a hint in the first paragraph, I will tell you now. Courtney loves professional football and she makes what she says is the best ever Super Sunday dip (Courtney’s Get Fixed Super Sunday Dip). She made it for the crew a month ago, on the set of Paula’s Best Dishes, and Paula said we had to make it available for you all to have for the game…it was THAT good! Packed with chicken and a fiery kick, it will fill you up at least until the halftime commercials.

I didn’t let Paula know I was writing about Courtney when I asked her why Courtney is so special to her. She looked at me sideways, like I had been living in a cave for the past 3 years, and said “I adore Courtney. She is so funny, she is loyal and she makes me look beautiful even on days when I’m not feelin’ so pretty…she’s my friend.” I feel blessed that Paula and I share the same friend. Enjoy Courtney’s dip and the game!

Courtney’s Get Fixed Super Sunday Dip

2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, poached and shredded
1/2 cup hot Sauce, (Courtney uses Frank’s Hot Sauce)
1/2 cup blue cheese dressing, (Courtney uses Marie’s Blue Cheese Dressing)
4 oz. Cheddar cheese, grated
4 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, grated
Salt and pepper
4 oz. blue cheese, crumbled

Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the hot sauce, dressing, Cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese just until combined. Salt and pepper to taste. Gently fold in the shredded chicken and pour mixture into a casserole dish that has been sprayed with a non stick cooking spray. Top with blue cheese and bake until cheese is melted and bubbly (approximately 30 minutes). Serve with tortilla chips or a crusty bread.

Servings: 4-6

Hi Paula!
This looks wonderful.  I will have to add this to the menu for Sunday.  Great picture of you too!
So excited to possibly meet you at the South Beach Food and Wine Festival at the end of the month.  I won tickets and to win the tickets I had to answer “what my favorite celebrity chef was?”  You of course are my favorite.  Love the blog and look forward to more post.  All the best!

Great recipe!! Will be away for the big game but will save this one for the next time the peoples come over for a playdate!!  Thanks for sharing.

By Cathy on February 05, 2010

Love the pic of you two. I’ve made this dip for a long time and it’s always a huge hit. We’ve always called it Buffalo wing dip, because of the hot sauce, chicken and blue cheese. I always add cream cheese to mine too, though. Hey, why not, right?

By Starr on February 04, 2010

The picture looks great ladies!!! I make a dip just like this one but to make it faster you use 2 cans of canned chicken, 1 cp. ranch dressing if you don’t like bleu cheese, 2 blocks of creamcheese,3/4 cp frank’s hot sauce and 2cps. shredded cheddar cheese. I put it in a little crockpot and there ya have it boneless buffalo wing dip !!! Great for game day without the messy fingers !!!!

By Heather Lazar on February 04, 2010

Can you substitute ranch dressing for the blue cheese dressing? And maybe something else crumbled on top? No blue cheese eaters around here. LOL


By Sherrie on February 03, 2010

I make this same dip but with these slight adjustments:1)press 2 bars of cream cheese in the bottom of the pan 2)instead of mixing all the other ingredients layer them in the order listed 3) I serve it with Fritos
This dip is ALWAYS a big hit with the crowd!!

By Anita Henley on February 03, 2010

Yum, I can’t wait to make this dip for the Super Bowl, I’m tired of making my same old sausage cheese dip.  Let’s face it I can claim it healthy by using chicken and not sausage.  Smile Perhaps it will take my Super Bowl blues away since my Pittsburgh Steelers are not playing.

By Tina Mae Aldridge on February 03, 2010

Hello Paula:
I am so blessed to have read your bio…You are an amazing example to all people who have had to begin a new life over again. With a couple of dollars and a truck load of faith, right? Bethany my daughter says “everythings betta with butta in the batte.”
I said I know someone who would agree Bethany, Miss Paula Dean. That is why I looked for you. So glad that I did.

Yes my sister is fabulous and boy can she cook!  I made her buffalo chicken dip for a superbowl party a couple of years ago (when the Giants won an unbelievable superbowl at the last minute) and it was a HUGE success.  I’d like to think I’ve been invited back because of my charming personality but it may because of my sister’s recipe.

By Carrie Fix on February 03, 2010

Courtney…what can we say about her.  I have known her since before she was born. Her and her sister Carrie are as much sisters to me as the three I have.  She is a wonderful person with a wonderful heart.  Paula is so right about how she can throw a football and apply makeup all in at the same time!!!  She makes everyone beautiful by just being around her.  Oh, and about that dip…AWESOME!!!  There shouldn’t be a super bowl party without it!!!
