Buffalo Chicken Tacos with Blue Cheese Slaw

Aren’t tacos everything? I could definitely eat tacos, in some form or another, for every meal for the rest of my life. And I’m seriously loving this newish trend of tacos being filled with all sorts of amazing things outside of the realm of regular ol’ Mexican taco fillings. More and more, tacos are being stuffed with very interesting combos. 

Korean BBQ tacos? Delicious. Indian curry tacos? YES. Sushi tacos? Yes, and I should work on that idea. Spaghetti tacos? I bet those are actually decent. 

This recipe for buffalo chicken tacos with blue cheese slaw, while it’s a little off the wall,  combines two of my favorite things: buffalo chicken and tacos . . . and these tacos are SO GOOD. Branching out is so much fun, especially when it comes to tacos.


Buffalo chicken:

2 c. shredded chicken (I use rotisserie chicken)

1 c. buffalo sauce

Blue cheese slaw:

1 1/2  c. shredded cabbage

½ c. carrots, shredded 

½ c. celery, chopped

¼ c. cilantro, chopped

2 green onions, sliced

1 avocado, diced

1 jalapeno, chopped (if you like it spicy!)

Juice from 1 lime

Blue cheese dressing


Tortillas (corn or flour – your preference)

Blue cheese crumbles

Prepare the buffalo sauce and mix into the chicken until combined. Place the chicken on a lined baking sheet and broil for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. 

While the chicken is in the oven, create a slaw by mixing together the cabbage, carrots, celery, cilantro, avocado, lime, and jalapenos. Add blue cheese dressing to taste and toss to combine. 

To assemble the tacos, top the tortillas with the buffalo chicken, slaw, and blue cheese crumbles. Enjoy!
