BUFFALO DEVILED EGGS
When you are looking for easy appetizer recipes, what do you normally think of? A make-ahead dip, something you can whip up in less than 10 minutes?
How about something you can make with ingredients you already have on hand so you don’t have to run to the store?
For me, it’s all three of these requirements and that’s exactly how these deviled eggs stuffed with spicy buffalo chicken came about!
Seeing as how our family eats tapas and appetizers most of the time, I try to keep things on hand that I can use to whip up something fast and delicious.
Ingredients like shredded chicken, a few dressings, browned ground beef, puff pastry, tortillas, cream cheese, and of course, hard-boiled eggs.

HOW DO YOU MAKE BUFFALO CHICKEN?
Buffalo chicken is one of those universally popular flavors, much like ranch or sweet and sour. I can see why, because it hits all the right flavor notes: salty, tangy, and spicy.
Not only is it easy to make yourself, but you can usually find the sauce already made at the store.
I like to make my own buffalo sauce for the buffalo chicken because I like to keep the additives on the low side and I want to control the level of spice. Meaning I like it hot!
Making buffalo chicken is easy, just a simple mixture of hot sauce and melted butter tossed over some shredded chicken.
Sounds super easy, right? Of course it is. I’m sure you have some chicken either in your fridge or freeze that is just begging for some buffalo sauce right now!
WHAT CAN I USE IF I DON’T LIKE BLUE CHEESE?
Feel free to leave out the cheese or you can add a little feta for added creaminess!
CAN I MAKE THE FILLING AHEAD OF TIME?
Yes, you can.You can make it up to 3 days in advance just be sure to stir it up before you add it to the eggs.
CAN I FREEZE THESE?
I would not recommend freezing your eggs.
WHAT CAN I SUBSTITUTE FOR MAYO?
Feel free to use an avocado in place of the mayo, or even a little sour cream!
DEVILED EGGS WITH HOT SAUCE
Ever wonder why are they called deviled eggs? The term “deviled” was used to describe spicy foods or foods with some zest.
Meaning they were made with hot spices or something as simple as mustard or black pepper! I don’t think that these things are all-together “devilish” but I do like hot foods so I am a little biased.
To make these Buffalo Chicken Deviled Eggs, hard-boil your eggs as you normally would, cool, and remove the yolks.
Or if you are in a rush, you can buy cooked eggs, already peeled, at the store. Mix the yolks with the spices, hot sauce, and mayo.
Garnish with blue cheese crumbles and celery leaves if desired. Serve cold!
