Delicious and Gluten Free!
As a former New Yorker, I always crave the amazing buffalo wing sauce on the east coast and the range of options restaurants pump out using all things buffalo wings – Buffalo Chicken Subs, Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip, Buffalo Chicken Soup, the list goes on and on.
Last night, I decided to recreate one of my favorite Buffalo Chicken Recipes, Buffalo Chicken Nachos! These nachos are super easy to make, gluten free and healthier than fried buffalo tenders and blue cheese. They aren’t super spicy so even my kids got in on some of the action.
