Love it or hate it, you’ve got to admit the Super Bowl provides a great excuse for staying in on Sunday afternoon with a big snack spread. And we don’t know about you, but we never miss an opportunity to whip up an easy Buffalo chicken recipe, football or not.
We know Buffalo sauce is nothing but jazzed-up hot sauce and melted butter, but that doesn’t make it any less perfect. Somehow, we can eat a whole lot of Buffalo-spiked snacks without getting bored of the flavor. So this year, we’re going to dedicate our entire Super Bowl spread to the magic that is Buffalo sauce.
