Spicy Buffalo Ranch Wings

I’m always in the mood for a big ole batch of chicken wings. They don’t always have to be spicy, and they don’t always have to be traditional. But the other day I was craving that great Buffalo-wing flavor. With a twist. So I fired up my grilled and made a few spicy Buffalo Ranch wings. These wings have just the right amount of heat. With a hint of Ranch dressing… without the dressing.

Spicy Buffalo Ranch Wings

I thoroughly enjoyed my spicy Buffalo Ranch wings. They really hit the spot. The sauce is the right consistency, the right spiciness. I think the sauce is perfect for a wing party. It’s a nice change from ‘just’ straight-up Buffalo wings.

I used Crystal hot sauce when I made this sauce. It’s definitely one of my go-to, super-tasty, just nicely spicy hot sauces.

I store my leftover homemade sauces in squeeze bottles. If refrigerated, I set them out an hour before using so they come to room temperature. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings!
