Buffalo sauce is a famous chicken wing sauce that was originally invented in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York. Since then, it has become the most popular sauce for chicken wings in the United States.

I enjoyed my first taste of authentic Buffalo sauce during my visit to the U.S. The flavor of this sauce is a unique combination of nutty, sour, and spicy. Once I returned home, I wanted to bring back all of the memories by creating a very simple, two-ingredient Buffalo sauce that I could incorporate into my fried rice. It's a totally unusual recipe, but it's absolutely delicious. I topped my fried rice with chicharron piel de pollo (crispy chicken skins) to give it an extra crunch. I hope you try this easy-to-make recipe at home, too! Enjoy.
