Although I maintain this tangy, orange hot sauce should be enjoyed all year long, it becomes quite a bit more popular every year around the Super Bowl. What's not to love? It's spicy, zesty, full of flavor, and sometimes a little bit messy, and it pairs perfectly with chicken and blue cheese. But buffalo sauce isn't just for wings. There are a plethora of ways to enjoy this game-day flavor. Here are six of our favorite ways to enjoy buffalo sauce, from macaroni and cheese to quesadillas.
Here's the secret to being the best-liked person in the room: make hot and cheesy buffalo chicken dip. If you're the kind of person who dreams about buffalo sauce (and really, who doesn't?), then score a touchdown at your next game-day party with a creamy, tangy dip that tastes just like fiery-hot chicken wings. Watch the video, print out the recipe, and wait for all your friends to beg you for the recipe.

With the Super Bowl approaching this weekend, there are plenty of chicken wing recipes to choose from, so why not try a different take on the game-day standby? For a nonmessy spin on the traditional Super Bowl appetizer, check out the wonton recipe from PrettyGirlsCook below.
Plan on having a Super Bowl party? Buffalo Chicken Wontons have the great flavor of buffalo wings — minus the mess. Combine shredded chicken, minced garlic, lime juice, and a handful of other ingredients into wonton wrappers for an appetizer that's sure to score major points with your friends.

Buffalo chicken is one of my favorite game-time indulgences, and I love to transform its flavors into something new, like a buffalo chicken dip and now a pizza with all of the same flavors. This tasty pie is topped with buffalo chicken, mozzarella, and Gorgonzola cheese, but it doesn't end there: the whole pizza gets topped with a shaved celery and parsley salad.
If you've never shaved your celery, don't worry: it's really easy. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the stringiness, and be sure to hang onto the leaves of the celery, since they are quite tender and add texture to the salad.
Alone, this pizza might be a little heavy but topped with shaved celery salad, it's lighter and even has a bit of a crunch. Score a touchdown with this pizza at your Super Bowl party when you get the recipe!
Buffalo wings are an essential for just about any Super Bowl party, but it's hard to keep them warm, and I don't want my house smelling like fried food. So I was thrilled to find a buffalo chicken and cheese dip with the exact same flavors! The best part: you can make the recipe ahead of time and just warm it up in the oven just before the game starts. Bonus: if the dip needs a little more heat at halftime, just throw it in the microwave for a minute to bring it back to its creamy state. Be sure to alter the recipe to suit your palate by picking your favorite variety of hot sauce. Serve this scrumptious spicy dip with chips or celery sticks for an even more authentic buffalo wing feel. Get ready for kickoff and keep reading for the recipe.
Buffalo wings are quintessential game day eats, but they're often a little hard and messy to make at home, and those premade ones from the store just never seem like a good idea. Thankfully, this recipe's perfect for Monday Night Football; it brings together crunchy, panko-crusted chicken, numbingly tangy buffalo sauce, and blue cheese dip for a classic buffalo wing combination without as much hassle.
You can make the strips even healthier by swapping the regular mayo for a lower-fat alternative, or even using sour cream or milk instead. If you find yourself with leftovers, just thin the dip with a bit more milk for a blue cheese dressing, and toss the strips into lettuce leaves to make an amazing chicken salad! Skip out on your local pub's food — we promise you won't miss the orange-tinted fingers — and make your own buffalo chicken strips when you keep reading.
Buffalo-flavoring has been popping up everywhere these days, and while I've enjoyed it in classic and dip forms, I haven't really experienced it any other way. That's why, when I came across this recipe for buffalo-chicken quesadillas, I knew I had to make it! For being such a tasty, finger-licking good appetizer, it's surprising to learn that the technique is super easy.
All you do is toss store-bought chicken with bottled Buffalo sauce and Monterey jack cheese. Then you slap the mixture between two tortillas, cook, and serve alongside blue cheese dressing. Genius! It's a great appetizer that's perfect for a movie night. To learn how its made, read more
When it comes to game day eats, dips are convenient, chili is comforting, and pizza is solid, but none of them hold a candle to the reigning champion of Super Bowl snacks: fiery, vinegar-laden chicken wings.
While it's a Sunday requirement, buffalo chicken isn't the most ideal to make; even with special cooking equipment, its deep-fried preparation can be dangerous, messy, and odorous. Leave it to the king of food science, Alton Brown, to come up with an alternative cooking method for buffalo chicken.
His recipe calls for steaming, chilling, and then baking the chicken wings. It's healthier, less messy, and even my sports fanatic boyfriend can't tell the difference! For a baked version that achieves the same crispy, crackly results, keep reading.
St. Louis Rams fans: if you think a winning touchdown has been impossible this season, just wait until you try to score some buffalo chicken wings.
Wing demand is on the rise, but due to this year's waning need for chicken breast, poultry producers have cut chicken production for the first time in 36 years. Broiler chicken production is forecast to be down 3.5 percent this year — and, with only two wings per chicken, wholesale wing costs are poised to increase dramatically.
So, much like Super Bowl Sunday last year, on game day other spicy chicken dishes will just have to fly. Since what I really want to eat is buffalo chicken cheese dip, that's fine with me. Will you miss this year's wings? Or are you willing to pay a higher price for them?
