Buffalo Chicken Tacos

Buffalo Chicken Tacos just make flat sense. Buffalo. Good. Chicken. Good. Tacos. Great. The next time you think “I wonder what I should make for dinner”, print this recipe out, put it on your fridge, and make this. You won’t be disappointed. This is version 3.0 of the recipe, made a little easier for those without the time or want to air fry. This also can be a healthier replacement to buffalo chicken dip for the next party. PS. Cover them with this homemade ranch (that has 90% fewer calories than store bought…)
