Quick Buffalo chicken tacos

Buffalo chicken tacos

I’ve had exactly zero cravings for sweets during this pregnancy . . . but Buffalo wing sauce?

Forget about it.

Baby J is all about the spicy, savory, salty and hot. Though I won’t typically turn down a dessert, I’m much more likely to lose myself in a bag of chips than a slice of cake. And if those chips are flavored with jalapenos? Well.

My husband hails from the Buffalo area, so I guess we’re predisposed to love the food of his native land. But even before he’d convinced me to really embrace all things wing sauce, I was a fan. And these days? If we’re not making this chili, I’m adding Frank’s RedHot to sour cream and mayo to make our own quick dip.

I think I have a problem.

A good friend shared this recipe for Buffalo chicken tacos with me on Monday and, by Wednesday, I was tossing on the RedHot and salivating over the stove.

The best part about this dinner? It’s quick, painless and uses ingredients you probably have on hand. The tacos come together in 20 minutes or so, leaving you to devour them blindly and get back to the rest of your evening.

After you’ve happily stuffed your face, of course.

You’ll know what I mean.

  1. Ugh…this was the wrong post to read first thing this morning. I just started a week long detox and you’re pictures have me salivating through the screen! I am so trying these next week. Would make a great game day dish as well! Thank you 🙂

  2. I know what I’m having for dinner this weekend! Like you, I have mostly lost my sweet tooth and only want salty, savory things (although I also won’t turn down a sweet dessert!). Bring on the chips and dip, french fries, and cheese.

  3. Gah! I’m hungry now. I’ve got to try this and it seems like the recipe is versatile and I like that because currently there’s no chicken in my house.

  4. Looks SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD. Except now I”m wondering if you’re one of the lucky ones who escaped heartburn? Mine was so bad that there were nights when I had to sleep in the lazy boy. But love me some spicy anyway!!

    • Fingers crossed, Trish, but I have rarely had any heartburn this pregnancy. I keep wondering if it’s going to slap me in the face — especially now that I’m in the third trimester? I have the Tums on hand, just in case!

  5. Oooh, delicious! Thanks for sharing!

    I am normally a sweets girl through and through, but I craved nothing but savory food when I was pregnant! They say that most boy pregnancies, you crave savory and salty, and most girl pregnancies, you crave sweet. It was definitely true for me and was one of the things that tipped me off that we were having a boy. 🙂 Sounds like it’s been true for you, too!

  6. I LOOOVVEEE buffalo sauce. I had a minor addiction to it on my pizza back in college…and now I think I’m about to have a similar taco affliction.

  7. Wow. This looks delicious and definitely something that I would try out. I wonder if it’ll still be nice if i made it mild. Quick Buffalo chicken tacos…I think I’m craving some too!
