Buffalo Chicken Wraps

I have the best news ever!

I’m sick.

I blame my husband and whatever jerk or jerkette passed it along to him at work. Friday he came home complaining of sinus pressure and hints of fatigue and I was all, SISSY. But then I ran to the bathroom, rubbed echinacea powder and Robitussin all into my body pores, climbed into my very stylish bubble outfit and hid under the bed.

It didn’t work.

Sooo, before I go hook up a green tea IV drip and snort crushed cough drops for the next 13 hours, I need to show you these buffalo chicken wraps.

Mother of Mary and all the babies that drink the morning dew, these wraps….oh….my…

I don’t know what my deal is but lately I’ve been u-b-s-a-y-e-s-s-e-d with any and all things buffalo. Like, so much that I would lick buffalo sauce straight off a dirty floor if times got ugly enough.

WHOAAA, BEV. Yeah, I should seriously stop right there and go back to bed.

(I still would though.)

If you suffer from the buff-a-freak sickness like I do, add these thangs to your game day menu. Actually, just add them to your to-do list for this morning.

I’m going to go add buffalo sauce to my green tea now. Goodbye.

Buffalo Chicken Wraps:

I’m showing you what it looks like all layered, but take your little fingers and jumble it all up together so that the sauce and dressing coats everything. And then glug some more hot sauce on it. And then a little more. Okay one more.

Ugh. Why don’t I have this on my breakfast plate right this second?


I just re-read my post and only 3 words were in all caps. I really AM sick. Oh! Make that 4.

 What it took for 4 wraps:

* 1 Tbs butter, melted
* 1 pinch cayenne pepper
* 1 pinch freshly ground pepper
* 1 pinch coarse salt
* 1/2 cup hot pepper sauce, divided (I used Franks)
* 1 pound chicken tenders
* 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
* 1 roma tomato, diced
* 4 slices bacon, cooked and coarsely chopped
* 2 eggs, hardboiled and coarsely chopped
* 1/4 cup ranch dressing
* 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese, divided
* 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
* 4 large jalapeno cheddar tortillas

Combine the butter, cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt and 1/4 cup of the hot pepper sauce in a bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and marinate for however long you want to. An hour or more.

Heat an indoor grill (or outdoor, whatevs) over medium-high and coat with cooking spray. Add the chicken tenders and grill until cooked through with nice grill marks on both sides, about 8 minutes total. Remove from grill and roughly chop.

Whisk the ranch with 1/4 cup of the blue cheese crumbles. Or buy blue cheese dressing.

Heat up the tortillas in the oven or microwave and start crafting your wraps. Layer some chicken in the center, followed by bacon, eggs, romaine, blue cheese, cheddar, the dressing and a few more good glugs of hot pepper sauce. With your fingers, mix up the filling so the dressing evenly coats all of the ingredients.

Roll up the burrito and tuck in the corners. You can throw it back on the grill if you want, or if you’re a ravenous freak, go ahead and slice in half and demolish.

    I hope hubs is feeling suitably guilty and is treating you like a princess! Feel better soon. Meanwhile, I'll just help you out by taking one of these wraps of your hands.

    Yum! I love buffalo chicken wraps, but haven't made them at home. These look great! Franks is where it's at too, the best.

    These may be going on my Super Bowl list!

    Hope you both feel better soon. I got sick last Wednesday and now my husband is fighting it off. He got it a lot worse than I did though. Oops! Maybe this buffalo sauce would help with his congestion. I could spoon feed it to him right before bed so I don't have to listen to the event that is him trying to breathe when he lays down. I think it might actually be more torturous to me listening than to him trying to breathe.

    You already know how I feel about buffalo chicken, so no words needed!!

    OMG I would so like to eat these but I don't eat buffalo. Hmm..what should I subsititute? I'm JOKING, all you weirdos. I'm off to drink Mountain Dew with babies.

    Oh Bev...the things you make me want to eat at 7 o'clock in the morning. YUM-O.

    My fiance is obsessed with any and everything buffalo....I need to make these ASAP. Feel better and battle your demon sickness with whiskey in your tea. Seriously, it's the cure all. xoxo

    You poor thing!! These wraps look delish for sure. I've never been a fan of things "buffalo", but I think it's because I don't like wings. (too messy, too much icky meat parts and too little good meat parts). I think i would like these, though. Like right now at 8AM. (See Amy, I'm not the only one!)

    I always eat spicy food when I'm sick because my taste buds like to play dead when I have a cold. Hope you feel better soon!

    I'm in love with Frank's...that stuff is magic!
  15. Lisa [With Style and Grace] January 24, 2012 at 5:58 pm #
    I must be one of the few that doesn't eat spicy foods when I'm sick. . . actually, I hardly eat spicy foods when I'm not sick, so nevermind. Feel better my dear!!
  16. Noelle January 24, 2012 at 6:27 pm #
    Um. omg. This post just made my yogurt-for-lunch seem woefully inadequate. Woe.full.y. Feel better....and listen to Heather! Whiskey is the solution to (and cause of) most of life's problems. Drink enough and you'll fall asleep for a few days...and wake up illness-free!

    Oh my these are right up my alley. Not only am I from Buffalo but I am addicted to Buffalo sauce. These look fabulous! Hope you feel better soon!

    I've dropped a wing at my favorite brewery and debated eating it off the floor, I love their sauce that much. I was on a date so I resisted, but I definitely had an internal struggle. And if a guy doesn't like his food at least as spicy as mine, we have a problem. Can we pause and imagine how good some avocado would be in here? Because it sounds to me like a buffalo cobb salad wrap.
  19. Denise January 24, 2012 at 9:26 pm #
    Hope you feel better soon! These wraps look so good. I made buffalo wraps some months ago, but completely forgot about them. Not anymore!

    Girl sorry to hear you're sick. That sucks. Trust me, I have a 4 year old who is bringing home ebola and e coli daily. Well not quite but ya know. Feel better!
  21. Michelle January 24, 2012 at 11:37 pm #
    Making these for dinner tonight! :)
  22. Cassie January 24, 2012 at 11:44 pm #
    Feel better soon lady! I love these. I'm married to a buffalo-obsessed man and being married to him has turned me into a buffalo-loving woman. LOVE these already!

  26. kale @ tastes good to me! January 25, 2012 at 6:34 am #
    "babies that drink the morning dew", eh? Not even a life threatening illness!! (ie. the way a cold feels to me) could prevent your randomness. Love that!

      haha! "babies that drink the morning dew" - I randomly said that in my early 20s (15 years ago) as some joke and it was so out of left field and weird that it stuck! I have a group of friends who still say versions of it to this day. We're weird. ;)
  27. Sally @ Spontaneous Hausfrau January 25, 2012 at 1:16 pm #
    Well, look on the bright side - perhaps the hot sauce will help clear your sinuses? There's something addictive about that tangy hot sauce smell and just looking at these pictures has me craving this wrap. And it's 8:15 am.

    Just found this post through foodgawker and oh. my. gosh.. you sound just like me. I can't explain it but for the past two weeks I've literally become OBSESSED with anything and everything buffalo. I have been looking for the perfect buffalo wrap recipe for weeks and had yet to find one... until now. I will definitely be trying this out over the weekend. Thank you, thank you! OH and feel better :)

  5. Buffalo Chicken Wraps | Best Recipes Ever - March 16, 2015 […] As much as I love buffalo chicken I’d never made it into a wrap before. Then a craving for buffalo chicken hit and since it was Friday we went out for dinner. I ordered a buffalo chicken wrap and it was a disgrace. The chicken was breaded, which meant it was mostly breading and very little chicken. It was also mostly filler. I vowed right then and there to find a great version to make at home. My friend Jaida recently turned me on to Bev Cooks and I remembered seeing her post a recipe for Buffalo Chicken Wraps. […]
