Notes

What Kind of Hot Sauce Should I Use?
I recommend using Frank's Red Hot Sauce.  But you can also use Crystal Hot Sauce.  Both are a cayenne pepper hot sauce and work well when creating a "buffalo flavor".
Traditional buffalo sauces are a combination of butter and hot sauce.  For this recipe we are skipping the butter, but it still has that undeniable buffalo flavor.
Can I Use Corn Tortillas Rather Than Flour?
Of course!  Whatever tortilla you choose, the fillings will remain the same and the taco will still be delicious.
Can I Save The Leftovers?
Yes!  Store your ingredients separated. Keep your chicken in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.  Store the dressing in an airtight container for up to a week.  Store veggies also in airtight containers.
