Recipe: Buffalo Chicken Fries
Give your favorite snack a fresh twist by adding chopped buffalo chicken, cheese and ranch dressing. (Southern Bite)

This season, awesome game-day food doesn’t have to take a lot of time or be crazy expensive. These Buffalo Chicken Fries are one of our favorite splurges when the game is on. They’re quick, crazy easy and you can make a huge platter of them for less than $15.

We had a few friends stop by one weekend and they ended up staying to watch the football game. Wanting to be a good host, I rummaged through the kitchen, but couldn’t find much to serve up in the way of game-day snacks.

No worries, though. I jumped in the car, ran to Family Dollar just down the street and picked up everything I needed to make one of our favorite football foods – Buffalo Chicken Fries.

We’ve been making this tangy, cheesy perfection since we first had them at a local burger joint a while back. This recipe includes crispy french fries topped with melty cheese, chopped Buffalo chicken fingers, more cheese and a drizzle of ranch dressing. Yeah, it’s a little over the top – but who wants to eat a salad when they’re watching football? I mean, just look at that cheese.

Serve a hungry crowd a dish filled with comfort and flavor. (Southern Bite)
