I’m not sure what it is about the the whole buffalo wing flavor, but I’m hooked! All the flavors of several of my favorite appetizers come together in these quick and easy oven fries. And let me tell you folks, these Buffalo Chicken Fries are incredible. INCREDIBLE! With shredded chicken, three types of cheese, fresh chives and a drizzling of ranch dressing , it’s a true crowd-pleaser.

I used 1/2 cup of hot sauce and thought the amount of heat was perfect (but I like things extra spicy). Andrew found them to be a bit too spicy and would have liked them much better if I had only used 1/4 cup of hot sauce. I know, pansy, right? I suggest starting with 1/4 cup of hot sauce and adding more to taste if you happen to live with a pansy as well. ;) Spicy, crispy, and gooey…you really can’t go wrong!

    Is Frank’s Hot Sauce a regional thing? Does anyone have a bottle who would be willing to list the ingredients? TIA.t

      Hi Laura,
      I’m not sure if it’s a regional thing or not, you can buy it on Amazon if you can’t find it in your local grocery. However, you can use whatever brand of hot cayenne sauce you desire. If you give them a try I would love to hear how it turns out for you! :)

    Yum! These look fabulous! I happen to have a bottle of Frank’s in the house and haven’t opened it yet. This might be the perfect excuse! And my husband loves spicy — YAY!
