Recipe Notes

Before we get to the recipe, I wanted to explain the difference between Frank's Red Hot and Frank's Buffalo Sauce. Red Hot is a hot sauce. Buffalo sauce is made with hot sauce, but has additional ingredients and is not as spicy. You want to use buffalo sauce for this recipe, not Red Hot.
