WHY THIS RECIPE

This hot sauce recipe is great because it’s a simple way to change up the flavors of food quickly. While most people will add this to chicken wings, I’m also a huge fan of using this a dipping sauce for fries and even veggies, too! 

 

This simple hot wing sauce will have you making up a batch and keeping it stored in your fridge. Since it can last a few days once made, it’s a great condiment to have on hand for your upcoming weekly meals.

FAQ

What is Buffalo Sauce?

Buffalo sauce is the same as a chicken wing sauce or hot wing sauce. It’s just another name that people tend to call it, depending on what state they’re located in. 

How long does Buffalo Sauce last?

If you store it in the fridge, it should last up to 7 days without any issues. Since you’re not using any ingredients that don’t have a long shelf life, it should be fine for several days.
