As an extremely addicting, spicy, tangy, and rich sauce, buffalo sauce is an absolute must-have when dipping, drizzling, or serving your favorite chicken wings.

And the best part is, it is very easy to make. It just takes four simple ingredients and a few minutes to make a buffalo sauce and you’re ready to dip or drizzle it all over your favorite foods.

Apronese believes, it’s too easy for your ability, fast and not difficult, you have to try.

Buffalo Sauce: What Is It?

The name of this sauce actually comes from Buffalo, New York, where it is said to have originated, so if you are not from the U.S., you may have a hard time understanding how someone could make a sauce from a buffalo, but do not worry, it is said to have originated in Buffalo.

This is a very tasty recipe that has a simple combination of cayenne hot sauce, butter, and salt. By combining these ingredients, you achieve four major flavor elements of flavor (salt, fat, acid, and heat), creating a dish that is incredibly delicious and almost addictive.

In some recipes, if the recipe calls for it, other ingredients are also added to give the dish even more flavor. For my recipe below, I opted to keep the sauce fairly simple, with just a bit of garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce to give it a little more depth.

How to Choose a Hot Sauce

In traditional buffalo sauce, Frank’s Original Redhot Sauce is used. Frank’s Original Redhot Sauce is a vinegar-based hot sauce made with cayenne peppers. In spite of this, I have made buffalo sauce with other brands of cayenne hot sauce and they were equally as good, so you can always use a different brand if you wish to save money. Just make sure the cayenne hot sauce you are using is vinegar-based.

Buffalo Sauce Can Be Customized

Honestly, one of the reasons I love this Buffalo sauce recipe is that it can be customized pretty much to your liking. By simply adding one or two more ingredients, you can totally change the direction of the sauce. Here are a few ideas:

  • Honey or brown sugar to make a sweet-spicy sauce
  • Smoked paprika for a smokier flavor
  • Ranch seasoning for a garlic-herb infused buffalo sauce
  • Roasted garlic for an extra garlicky kick
  • Cayenne pepper for an extra hot buffalo sauce
