Expert Tips

  • We tested this buffalo chicken mini bowl recipe using rotisserie chicken, but any cooked chicken works fine.
  • Prefer a more mild taste? Opt for Frank's™ Buffalo Wings sauce, which is not as hot as the original sauce.
  • For extra Buffalo flair, top buffalo chicken dip taco bowls with crumbled blue cheese.
