Fiery Buffalo Sauce

I think I have finally found the perfect homemade buffalo sauce!  I’ve seen on food shows that really good buffalo sauces are usually made with some kind of mixture of hot sauce and butter.  The more butter the better.  But this recipe for Fiery Buffalo Sauce only uses a little bit of butter and has a secret ingredient that just blows my mind.

Melted butter, cayenne pepper sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot Original), and white vinegar are mixed together before adding in ranch dressing (or blue cheese dip as the recipe says, if you prefer).  That’s it.  This sauce is great with wings, nuggets or, in my opinion, anything you want to add buffalo sauce to.  Got some plain chicken breasts?  Add this sauce.  Got some boring pasta?  Add this sauce.  This is a perfectly universal buffalo sauce that will meet just about any need.  I have my leftover sauce in a container in the fridge and I’ll being using it later as a dressing for a spinach salad with chicken I plan on having.  I mean, why not?  If I could put this in my coffee, I think I would.
