Buffalo Chicken Tacos would be a delicious menu item for your next family night dinner or game day gathering. Just add your favorite toppings and let everyone build their own tacos. Just don’t forget the napkins!
One of my favorite meals growing up was tacos, not only did tacos remind me of Texas but they were a lot of fun to eat and I have to admit they still are fun to eat! Over the years the lowly taco has gone through many culinary changes with the hard shell crunch taco giving way to the soft flour tortilla version that you find on most restaurant menus.
But the changes didn’t stop with the outside of the taco, no that was just the beginning. Culinarians around the world began experimenting and adding nontraditional fillings to these little bundles of deliciousness creating a never ending assortment of choices with what has long been regarded as peasant food.
They’ve come a long way since my days in Texas, and I for one am very happy to see the changes!
It’s no secret that I absolutely love Buffalo Chicken and its found its way into many different dishes that I’ve made. So when I started thinking about tacos, it just seemed natural to use it as a filling.
As I thought about the filling I knew I wanted to use bleu cheese with it but took it a little outside the box by adding my bleu cheese dressing to cabbage creating a tangy version of a traditional cole slaw. Many times my additions are also for color and texture and roasted corn fell into that category very easily, and the results were amazingly delicious!
So much so that Lisa, who has refused to even touch a taco in all the years I’ve known her devoured one and asked for more. Now that’s when I know I have a winner, and I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
These little beauties will make a great addition to a family taco night or when friends come over to watch the big game.
Set up a do it yourself taco bar with all your favorite toppings and let your guests do the rest, just don’t forget the napkins because you’ll find everyone reverting to their childhood as they enjoy their creations, eating with wild abandon and making a little bit of a mess.
