Every day is another food holiday. You never run out of excuses to eat well. Today is taco day! And since I already shared my everyday tacos with you, I decided to go a little crazy.
These, my friends, are buffalo chicken tacos, and this recipe is by Jessica of How Sweet It Is. If you’re not reading her blog, you clearly haven’t reached your full awesomeness potential. She is a mad genius in the kitchen, and I totally wish we were friends.
They’re going to be a tiny bit of a splurge because what’s the point of buffalo sauce without blue cheese? Other than that, everything is pretty basic and simple. Crispy, spicy buffalo chicken, creamy ranch dressing, cool blue cheese, crunchy green onion, and sharp cheddar cheese all wrapped in a tortilla then stuffed in your face while you try to avoid having buffalo sauce dripping down your arm.
Anything wrapped in a tortilla is obviously extra awesome.
Friday is a good day to get spicy. One bottle of buffalo sauce can heat up a lot of food. Besides tacos, it’s great on pizza, enchiladas, pasta, burgers, probably veggies too. I wouldn’t know. Buffalo everything!
Go make tacos. You’ll probably also need a margarita since the oil that makes it hot is only soluble in fat and alcohol. Tequila is required. Tacos + tequila = party! It’s a holiday, after all.
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size chunks
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
- 4 whole wheat tortillas
- blue cheese
- sharp cheddar cheese
- chopped green onions
- ranch dressing
- extra buffalo sauce
- Whatever else you think is awesome
- Place chicken pieces in a small mixing bowl. Season your chicken pieces with garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.
- Sprinkle corn starch and flour over chicken pieces and toss the chicken with tongs to coat them in the flour.
- Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Give the chicken pieces a gentle shake to get rid of any excess flour. Cook the chicken for 2-3 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
- Remove chicken to a clean bowl, then toss with buffalo sauce.
- Assemble your tacos, wrap 'em up, and go to town.
