Buffalo Sauce is one of the easiest condiments to make at home. Butter, hot sauce, and garlic are all you need for a quick, delicious homemade buffalo sauce.
If you have a serious love of anything and everything “buffalo” flavored then you need to make your own buffalo sauce. This basic buffalo sauce isn’t too spicy (in case you have some heat wimps in the family). The fun thing is that you can make the sauce as spicy – or not – as you want. Try out this sauce on your own buffalo wings with this Baked Chicken Wings with Buffalo Sauce recipe.
What you will 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 moment’s notice. The recipe is a great base to create your own unique buffalo sauce!
This is a mild buffalo sauce. If you want it spicier, add a little Tabasco, Tapatio, 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.
