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!

Now you will add in the shredded rotisserie chicken and the diced celery.
Fold these gently into the cream cheese mixture.

Spoon some of the buffalo chicken mixture into each chip.
