Homemade Buffalo Sauce

Buffalo Sauce is one of the easiest condiments to make at home.  Make an easy weeknight dinner with homemade buffalo sauce in Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches.

Buffalo sauce

I have a serious love of anything and everything “buffalo” flavored.  Last winter my mom and I decided to break out the deep fryer make our own buffalo wings.  We needed a buffalo sauce that wasn’t too spicy because we have some serious wimps in the family so I set out to create a basic buffalo sauce we could use as a base.  My buffalo sauce recipe is perfect for this week’s Spice It Up! Sunday Supper theme! The fun thing is that you can make the sauce as spicy – or not – as you want.

What I love most about this sauce, other than the flavor, is that it takes about 5 minutes total to make.  You can whip it up at a moments notice.  The recipe is a great base to create your own unique buffalo sauce!  I would say this is a mild buffalo sauce. If you want it spicier, I’d add a little Tabasco or more Frank’s to it, a little at a time until you get the right amount of heat.  More garlic? No problem – just add it in!  A little honey to sweeten it or ginger to add an Asian twist.

    We make our own buffalo sauce too and make it the same way except we don’t add vinegar. Now I need to try it with the vinegar because that sounds like a yummy addition!
