Adjusting the Heat Index

One of the great things about this buffalo chicken casserole recipe is that it is easy to adjust the heat index based on your family’s taste preferences. If you like your food spicy, you can increase the amount of buffalo sauce or add some cayenne pepper to the chicken mixture. On the other hand, if you prefer a milder taste, you can reduce the amount of buffalo sauce or replace it with BBQ sauce. You can also omit the blue cheese if it is too strong for your liking.

Serving with a side of sour cream, ranch dressing, or cold glass of milk will also cool down the spice in this buffalo chicken casserole. The cream/milk contains casein which will subdue the capsaicin from the hot sauce.
