Fried Buffalo Chicken Tacos take Taco Tuesday up a notch! Corn tortillas are filled with buffalo chicken, chopped celery, shredded mozzarella cheese, and crumbled blue cheese, and fried until crispy on the stovetop. Don’t forget the blue cheese or range dipping sauce!
We are HUGE fans of buffalo chicken in this house. Well, Marc and I are. I had kind of stopped cooking my favorite Buffalo Chicken Pasta and Buffalo Chicken Sliders once we had kids because I figured it was too spicy. Turns out, they make MILD buffalo wing sauce (we’ve tried this one and this one and they’re both good!). Score! Once I found that out, the first thing I did was make these Fried Buffalo Chicken Tacos that I’ve been dreaming up for years now. They are creamy, crispy, a bit spicy, and super delicious.
These Buffalo Chicken Tacos are truly a breeze to make. I served them with a little side salad, carrots, and celery to stick with the buffalo chicken theme. Of course I also served the buffalo chicken tacos with some blue cheese dressing, as well. Ranch would also work!
These tacos are so so easy to make! To start, you’ll need to make buffalo chicken. You can follow a recipe for Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken, or you can go the really easy route like I did and use rotisserie chicken. I simply mixed together some shredded chicken and buffalo wing sauce.
Next, lay out your corn tortillas. I recommend 2-3 tacos per person, depending on what you are serving with the tacos. Place your desired amount of chicken on one half of each taco. Be sure not to overfill – these cook the best when they are not overfilled. This will be about a couple of tablespoons of chicken, but you can really just eyeball it.
Sprinkle chopped celery, shredded mozzarella cheese, and blue cheese on top of the chicken.
In large skillet, add the oil over medium heat. Fold up the tacos and place in the skillet. Sometimes I have to use a spatula or something similar to hold down the top part of the tortilla until it warms up. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes, until the cheese is gooey and the outside is golden brown and crispy.
