Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes

The Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes of a few weeks ago were a resounding success, so if your brain works the way that ours do, the next natural step is to take another of our favorite flavor combinations and transition it into a sloppy joe. What do you think about the flavors of buffalo chicken? We think Frank's and blue cheese make just about everything taste a little better, so that's the direction we went.


I probably shouldn't be surprised that these were going to be delicious, but I seriously could not stop stuffing my face!
