WHAT IS BUFFALO SAUCE?

Buffalo sauce has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. If you love bright, bold flavors you will probably love buffalo sauce.

I have a weakness for spicy foods and buffalo sauce meets that need very well!

You can make homemade buffalo sauce or you can buy it already made! This is convenient for when being a Wondermom is hard due to crazy schedules!!

Traditionally buffalo sauce is made with a combination of hot sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, butter, and different seasonings. There are lots of variations out there! I am a big fan of Frank’s brand because there is a big variety of sauces from mild to really hot!

I know I mention shortcuts a lot and this is another recipe that allows you to take some shortcuts to save time. Using rotisserie chicken is a really easy way to make this a QUICK and easy appetizer. Shortcuts allow me more time to do some fun outdoor activities with my family.

STEP ONE: MIX CREAM CHEESE

Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.

Take a large bowl and add the softened cream cheese and half a bottle of hot sauce. You can choose a mild or extra hot version based on personal preference.

Mix these ingredients together using a stand mixer or a handheld mixer until they are well blended.

Fold these gently into the cream cheese mixture.

Spoon some of the buffalo chicken mixture into each chip.
