You guys, it’s almost football season!!  Woohoo!  I don’t know what I like more, the game, or the snacks that we eat as we watch the game 😉  Sometimes making the game day food can be a bit tedious and too time consuming, but not these buffalo chicken tacos!

Which do you like more, tacos or chicken wings?  Man, that’s a tough decision isn’t it?  Well now you don’t have to chose.  That’s right… I combined the two in some ahhh-mazing buffalo chicken tacos!  And they’re mini, so they’re the perfect little 2-3 bite snack!

This recipe actually gets even better though, because it will take you 15 minutes to cook these bad boys!  Just 15 minutes… and it includes making a blue cheese dressing from scratch 😉

To start, get your oven preheating and line a baking sheet with foil.

While it’s heating up, go ahead and make your blue cheese dressing.

Just whisk all your ingredients together and set it aside for later 🙂

Arrange your boneless chicken bites in a single layer on your baking sheet and bake as directed on the product box.  Place the included sauce packet in a bowl of hot water to thaw.

While the chicken is baking, get your ingredients together for your celery/carrot slaw.

I used a bag of pre-shredded cole slaw and pre-shredded carrots, then just thinly sliced up some celery.  Make it easy on yourself, take a little help from the grocery store 🙂

The last thing to do is to make your mini soft taco shells.  For that, you’ll want to use the large burrito sized flour tortillas.  I was going to use my biscuit cutter to make small rounds, but my cutter wasn’t large enough, so I grabbed a small little mixing bowl and used it to cut 2 rounds out of each tortilla.

Now the chicken should be finished cooking, so place the chicken bites in a mixing bowl and toss with the buffalo sauce.

Now it’s time to make the tacos!

Start off with some slaw in the center of the tortilla, top with a couple buffalo chicken bites, top with some more slaw, and then drizzle with plenty of creamy blue cheese dressing.
