Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese

Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese

Don’t you love how everyone tries to take a recipe and make it buffalo flavored? Yes, me too. Guilty as charged. You know why people do this? Because it is delicious. Take a salad. Make it buffalo chicken. Instantly better. Chips and dip. Add buffalo chicken. Brilliant.  Our recipe for Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese is no different.

A classic dreamy and creamy macaroni and cheese recipe is made even yummier by adding grilled chopped chicken and loads of buffalo hot sauce.

Every macaroni noodle loaded bite is full of chicken and cheesy tangy flavor with just a little bit of heat.

Addictively yummy.

Black-Eyed Pea Chili

Black Eyed Pea Chili

Black-eyed pea what?! Don’t judge it until you try it. Sometimes you are in the mood for chili and you don’t have any beans. It happens. After a little rummaging through the pantry, we thought peas would be a better addition to this chili recipe than Spaghetti-O’s.

Thus, our Black-eyed Pea Chili Recipe was born.

Our recipe is easily adapted to what you have on hand, but we’ve gotta say…this version is pretty dang delicious. Continue Reading…
