For those who don’t follow the NHL, the Eastern Conference Quarter Finals between the Buffalo Sabres and the Philadelphia Flyers was a heated battle. I happen to be from Western New York and Lee is from Philadelphia. So for two weeks, we’ve been silent to each other except when a brief peace was made over Buffalo Chicken Nachos and Philly Cheesesteak Nachos during the Sabres OT victory last Friday.
Below is the delicious recipe for Buffalo Chicken Nachos. What makes chicken so Buffalo-ey you might ask? Well, Franks Red Hot Sauce and some butter. I will skip a few steps for you guys because I made my own chips with pre-made corn tortillas. I highly recommend this; it makes the chips extra crispy and thick enough to hold all the hot sauce, blue cheese and chicken that soon smoother every single chip.

12 Corn Tortillas – Makes 48 full chips or just use about a little over half bag of your favorite store bought chip.

Blue Cheese Sauce - According to the internet this is the recipe of the Anchor Bar’s blue cheese sauce in Buffalo, NY. Anchor Bar is home to the original Buffalo wing so I don’t mess with success. This recipe will make extra sauce but that just means you have to order more wings right?
2 tbsp finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise1 tbsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp white vinegar
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
Salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste
Just mix it all together and let it chill for a while. Easy!
